Summary0016459: Selecting "Nearest mirror" as installation source does not work
DescriptionI sniffed the traffic of the machine being installed and noticed, that it attempts a GET request to

http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=8.0.1905&arch=x86_64&repo=BaseOS&infra=$infra
where the response is:
Invalid release/repo/arch combination

So I tried manually with curl and a modified URL (only the major release number):

http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=8&arch=x86_64&repo=BaseOS&infra=$infra
and successfully got a mirror list.

I don't know, if this is a bug in anaconda (wrongly requesting the full qualified release number) or the setup of mirrorlist.centos.org (wrongly only accepting a major release number), so please redirect it if appropriate.
TagsNo tags attached.

Probably a duplicate of https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=16456, sorry for the inconvenience
