Almalinux 8.4 after updating issue

Hello. I have sucessfully updated my Almalinux to version 8.4. Just after couple of days I started my laptop and checked again if there are any updates, but:

[ahmed@alma8 Desktop]$ sudo dnf update -y
[sudo] password for ahmed:
Repository powertools is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository powertools-source is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository powertools-debuginfo is listed more than once in the configuration
Last metadata expiration check: 0:45:42 ago on Sat 29 May 2021 02:13:38 PM +04.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

I am not sure what is wrong. Please advice me.


I’ve just run the updates on my 8.4 desktop and there doesn’t seem to be a problem, so I think you need to look at your configuration. Have you checked to see if any files have been added to /etc/yum.repos.d/? I see that the 8.4 upgrade updated alma-ha.repo, almalinux-powertools.repo and almalinux.repo on my machine. Have you got any old copies still lurking in there?

I did face the same issue a default 8.3 test install upgraded to 8.4, I solved it with the following steps. Check before performing the next steps if you have almalinux.repo.rpmnew in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.
sudo cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
# move old repo to home directory
sudo mv almalinux.repo ~/
# rename almalinux.repo.rpmnew to almalinux.repo
sudo mv almalinux.repo.rpmnew almalinux.repo
