Hi,

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 (https://docs.oracle.com/en/operating-systems/oracle-linux/8/install/F13930.pdf), I change the http:// to https:// and added "yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL8/baseos/latest/x86_64" 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!
