Origin of the Problem
This is a known bug that affects CentOS 7 and Rocky Linux 8:
CentOS 7: bug #1872609 is closed because there would be no CentOS 7 minor releases in the future and only Critical/Security problems in CentOS 7 would be addressed in the future.
Rocky Linux 8: bug #1885992 is active, this problem should be fixed in future Rocky Linux 8 minor releases.
