I'm trying to install OL 8.3 using the x86_64-boot-uek.iso but I'm always getting "Error setting up base repository" even though my network connection is fine.

Any ideas how to proceed?

    I ran into the same thing and per some notes in the official installation documentation (, I change the http:// to https:// and added "" as the repository URL and it worked for me. Why they didn't set a sensible default like this makes no sense to me, but this should solve it for you. Enjoy!
