Package deb issue: Cant update/reinstall borgbackup

As the title tells - obviously a package dependency issue:

#> yum install borgbackup

Problem: conflicting requests

- nothing provides python3.6dist(packaging) needed by borgbackup-1.1.17-1.el8.x86_64

(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

Any hints, ideas or suggestions?


Websearch with that returns: Python3.6dist(packaging) Download (RPM)

Therefore, this could help:

yum --enablerepo=powertools install borgbackup

Just for completion for Alma, CentOS, Rocky (RHEL needs to install epel via rpm):

dnf install epel-release
dnf config-manager --set-enabled epel
dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools

PowerTools actually were active on that server, when it was still CentOS - early migrator and obviously the enabled powertools got lost in limbo (epel was still active).

So: Thank you for pointing it out, I would have needed forever to realize PowerTools repo isn’t active anymore on that server…
