The AlmaLinux OS 9 needs x86-64-v2. Can you install AlmaLinux OS 8 on the same system? If true, you can check your system's supported x86_64 architecture levels with this command below.:

/usr/lib64/ --help

Check for "x86-64-v2 (supported, searched)" in the output.

Answering the previous detailed note:
Yes I did have installed sucefully both Alma 8.3 and Alma 8.6 versions ...

Calling :

 /usr/lib64/ --help
gives the expected answer :
Subdirectories of glibc-hwcaps directories, in priority order:
  x86-64-v2 (supported, searched)

Legacy HWCAP subdirectories under library search path directories:
  x86_64 (AT_PLATFORM; supported, searched)
  tls (supported, searched)
  x86_64 (supported, searched)

The system is an P8P67 Asus Board with 32G RAM and SandyBridge I7-3770 CPU ...
