Install 8.6 minimal from usb fails with checksum errors for some packages


I am trying to upgrade from Centos7.9 to Alma8.6 but leapp is bombing out with a python error when trying to check bind, so I am attempting a fresh install using the minimal iso.

AlmaLinux 8.6 install is failing with incorrect checksums for some packages when I try to install from a USB drive to a free SSD disk.

I tested that the overall checksum for the iso was correct:

sha256sum AlmaLinux-8.6-x86_64-minimal.iso

29111d9539830359aecec69ac12cf0e407c7500ffd0b9c46598b15e5fe1f4847 AlmaLinux-8.6-x86_64-minimal.iso

cat CHECKSUM | grep -E ‘SHA256.*AlmaLinux-8.6-x86_64-minimal.iso’

SHA256 (AlmaLinux-8.6-x86_64-minimal.iso) = 29111d9539830359aecec69ac12cf0e407c7500ffd0b9c46598b15e5fe1f4847
which looks the same to me.

I then used gnome-disks to install the iso onto a usb drive and rebooted.
The installation process gets to ‘Downloading packages’ and then fails citing ‘incorrect checksums for some packages’.

Has anyone managed to use the minimal iso to install 8.6?

Do I need to configure the network interfaces to do an install from an usb?

OK, after looking at some redhat documentation, it seems I should also specify minimal in Software Selection instead of just leaving it at the default value. I have not tried this as yet
