Converting Centos 8 to Centos 8 Stream – because you know you want to!

This is more so I can remember, but it’s basically 3 steps.

Apply all the latest patches to your Centos 8 systems

dnf update -y
reboot

Then install the Centos 8 stream repo’s

dnf install -y centos-release-stream

Then swap from Centos Linux repo’s to Centos stream repo’s

dnf swap -y centos-{linux,stream}-repos

Then do a distro sync to get everything back in sync

dnf distro-sync -y
reboot

You should be golden at this point
