Assuming that reinstalling from zero is not practical, how do I perform an update from CentOS 7 to CentOS 8?
I tried to do a
yum install http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/centos/8/BaseOS/x86_64/os/Packages/centos-release-8.0-0.1905.0.9.el8.x86_64.rpm but apparently that does not work as one would expect. Running
yum update after this puts yum into an endless recursive attempt to resolve dependencies.
