LUKS encryption and CentOS 7 to AlmaLinux Upgrade?

I am coming across an error when attempting to upgrade a physical Dell PowerEdge730 server on CentOS 7 to AlmaLinux using the in-place upgrade instructions that say to use ELevate. When I run a preupgrade though Leapp, I get an ‘Upgrade Inhibited’ error that says the following:

Upgrade has been inhibited due to the following problems:

  1. Inhibitor: LUKS encrypted partition detected

I’ve realized that the LUKS encryption is not able to be bypassed. However, my solutions from research are either:

  1. Remove the actor that’s preventing encryption (Update Alma/RHEL with leapp and LUKS | IT-Hure) similar to in this article

  2. Remove the LUKS encryption from the partitioned drive (which sounds more risky than the upgrade itself)

Or, do a clean OS install, which does erase what is on the server (I believe).

Has anyone had any success upgrading a LUKS encrypted CentOS 7 server to AlmaLinux?
