Summary0017486: Commented instructions in CentOS-Media.repo are incorrect for CentOS 8
DescriptionThe comments in CentOS-Media.repo for CentOS 8 appear to contain instructions that are specific to CentOS 7 and earlier and need to be updated to be correct for CentOS 8. They instruct the user to use the yum command instead of dnf and more importantly the c8-media repo that is mentioned does not exist in CentOS 8 but rather has been replaced with c8-media-BaseOS and c8-media-AppStream. Following are the comments currently contained in the file:

# CentOS-Media.repo
#
# This repo can be used with mounted DVD media, verify the mount point for
# CentOS-8. You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
# DVD ISO that we release.
#
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
# yum --enablerepo=c8-media [command]
#
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
#
# yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c8-media [command]

These should be updated to the following, or something similar:

# CentOS-Media.repo
#
# This repo can be used with mounted DVD media, verify the mount point for
# CentOS-8. You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
# DVD ISO that we release.
#
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
# dnf --enablerepo=c8-media-\* [command]
#
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
#
# dnf --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c8-media-\* [command]
Steps To Reproducecat /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo
Additional InformationThe category for this bug should likely be "centos-repos" but since no such category is available in the selection drop-down I picked "centos-release" instead.

The version is applicable to 8.2.2004 but that was not yet available in the selection drop down so I picked the closest 8.1.1911.
