Summary0017787: Centos 8 fails to use the correct repo with local kickstart file on install
DescriptionHi ,

Created a custom iso with a ks.cfg file (added to the bug) .

Upon boot the ks.cfg file is loaded but auto install doesn't complete because of an error setting up a software source.

Upon inspection of logs on /tmp it looks like anacondas is not using the repo setting i put inside the ks.cfg file

"repo --name="AppStream" --baseurl=file:///run/install/repo/AppStream" but instead is insisting to use

"file:///run/install/repo/repodata/repmd.xml" (see attached pictures)

TagsNo tags attached.

the bug can be closed as misconfiguration on my side.

hidden files were not copied from the original iso (shopt -s dotglob).
