Centos 8 End Of Support

Post by nicola.piazzi »

I have all my efa installations on CentOS Linux release 8.4.2105
At 31/12/2021 this release reached end of support so dnf give an error in upgrade
This error reflects also on 13) Update Now function of efa menu so i cant update my system
Is there a way to bypass this and upgrade efa anyway ?

I found that is possible to update from efa4.repo and epel repos
Is a good thing to do so or it can cause conflicts ?

How do you even get to the menu. I forgot. I want to check mine to see if it still works as well.

Can one update/upgrade eFa4 on CentOS 8.5.2111 to CentOS 8 Stream, or is it a complete rebuild?

I just found this link which explains how to upgrade to the stream version.

https://www.centos.org/news-and-events/ ... -stream-8/

Seems to have worked on my install although it is complaining about trying to download the newest webmin which has only just been released by the looks of it. So I will give it a few hours and try again. But the centos components did not have any issues.
