How to Convert from CentOS 8 to CentOS Stream

CentOS Linux's future is CentOS Stream – yes, you have heard it correctly. This is the exact announcement from Rich Brown, community manager of CentOS.

In 2021, CentOS will be shifting focus from CentOS Linux to CentOS Stream, a midstream between Fedora and RHEL. This announcement garnered a lot of negative reactions in the comments section and all over social media and blogs.

Along with this, the support for CentOS 8 will end at the end of 2021, cut short from the actual end date – 31st May 2029. This end of support forces users to switch to CentOS stream as early as possible.

If you plan to upgrade from CentOS 7 to CentOS 8, you can skip or avoid upgrading to CentOS 8 as CentOS 7 will get support until 2024.

Though you may like it or not, we have to migrate our systems from CentOS 8 to CentOS stream one day. So, follow the below procedure to migrate from CentOS 8 to CentOS stream without any struggle.

Update CentOS 8 (Optional)

Bring up your system to the latest release of CentOS 8 (v8.3.2011) and then proceed to upgrade.
dnf update -y

Reboot the system to complete the update.

Check the OS version post-reboot.
cat /etc/centos-release

CentOS Linux release 8.3.2011

Convert from CentOS 8 to CentOS Stream

Install the CentOS Stream release package on your system. This package places the CentOS Stream repository configuration in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory.
dnf install centos-release-stream -y

Synchronize the installed packages to the latest available versions.
dnf distro-sync -y

This action would take some time to complete, and it depends on the speed of the internet connection. Wait for the update to complete.

Reboot the system post-migration.

Validate the OS release after reboot.
cat /etc/centos-release
