Summary0018071: dnf debug-info unable to install glibc
DescriptionI was debugging a C++ project in GDB shortly after setting up my system when I got the message "Missing separate debuginfos, use: yum debuginfo-install libgcc-8.4.1-1.el8.x86_64 libstdc++-8.4.1-1.el8.x86_64." After looking up the issue, I tried to take the recommended step of installing the debugging packages via "sudo dnf debug-install libstdc++ libgcc", since yum has been superseded. However, I only got the message
"Could not find debuginfo package for the following installed packages: libgcc-8.4.1-1.el8.x86_64, libstdc++-8.4.1-1.el8.x86_64
Could not find debugsource package for the following installed packages: libgcc-8.4.1-1.el8.x86_64, libstdc++-8.4.1-1.el8.x86_64"
I then tried using yum as the message stated, but it made no difference. I then found someone recommending that I enable /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Stream-Debuginfo.repo, but after trying that I got
Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'debuginfo':
  - Status code: 404 for (IP:
Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'debuginfo': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried

I would imagine my system has outdated repo addresses, but I am not sure how to remedy this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Steps To ReproduceI'm not sure who else will be able to reproduce, but:
1. Verify GDB error message (run some gcc/g++ generated code in GDB)
2. Attempt to install libgcc or libstdc++ packages using dnf debuginfo-install and see error message
3. Enable CentOS Stream 8 debuginfo in yum.repos.d
4. Install again and see other error message
Additional InformationI could not get a more granular version of my OS than "CentOS Stream 8" from either neofetch or cat /etc/centos-release. Kernel version is 4.18.0-269.el8.x86_64
