As the mirrors for CentOS 8.5 are now deprecated, you will need to use the CentOS archive repo. You can do this by editing the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-AppStream.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-BaseOS.repo files as follows (I’ll give one example, do the same for each file):

Comment out the ‘mirrorlist’ like so:

#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=AppStream&infra=$infra

then change the ‘baseurl’ to use ‘vault.centos.org’ so it looks like this:

baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/$contentdir/$releasever/AppStream/$basearch/os/

If you run dnf update the command should run successfully. If you see an error as before, it will be because you have another repo enabled that is now offline.

Complete example:

[appstream]
name=CentOS Linux $releasever - AppStream
#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=AppStream&infra=$infra
baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/$contentdir/$releasever/AppStream/$basearch/os/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-centosofficial

This will allow you to get everything upgraded, prior to migration to whichever RHEL O/S you want.
