Summary0000161: [Mirror Manager] boot.iso images refer to BaseOS/AppStream/extras-9.0 which report 404
DescriptionReported in our mattermost by txj, the boot.iso images do not properly find repository information. The boot.iso's cannot properly work without adding a repository as the default behavior is taking "9.0" as the $releasever. As mirror manager does not have aliases for these three primary repositories, it reports a 404 and the boot.iso installer reports that it cannot find repository information.

There should be three aliases per release:

BaseOS-X.Y -> rocky-BaseOS-X.Y
AppStream-X.Y -> rocky-AppStream-X.Y
extras-X.Y -> rocky-extras-X.Y

This should fix not only 9.0, but eventually the 8.X series when moved to peridot. This only affects the boot.iso images produced and does not affect an installed operating system as it dnf will use just the major version.

Optionally, when 8.7/9.1 release, the older 8.6 and 9.0 could potentially stick around but what it refers to (rocky-NAME-X.Y) could point to the vault instead to allow older installation media to continue working.
Steps To ReproduceBoot up a boot.iso image of Rocky Linux 8.6 and it will succeed finding repository information.

Boot up a boot.iso image of Rocky Linux 9.0 and it will fail to find repository information.
Additional InformationThere will also be cases where aliases for the beta and lookahead will be needed, but mostly the former.

BaseOS-X.Y-beta -> rocky-BaseOS-X.Y-beta
AppStream-X.Y-beta -> rocky-AppStream-X.Y-beta
extras-X.Y-beta -> rocky-extras-X.Y-beta

BaseOS-X.Y-lookahead -> rocky-BaseOS-X.Y-lookahead
AppStream-X.Y-lookahead -> rocky-AppStream-X.Y-lookahead
extras-X.Y-lookahead -> rocky-extras-X.Y-lookahead
TagsNo tags attached.

Resolved by creating repository redirect for the major versions. Going forward we will add this to the toolkit to keep in check.
