Summary0000079: Full DVD installer fails with checksum error for Python 3.6
DescriptionWhen running the 8.4 beta 1 full DVD ISO installer the creating a new VM in ESXi 7.0u1, I receive this message:

anaconda exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/dnf/", line 2529, in _select_remote_pkgs
_("Some packages from local repository have incorrect checksum"))
File /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/dnf/", line 1212, in download_packages
remote_pkgs, local_pkgs = self._select_remote_pkgs(pkglist)
File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pyanaconda/payload/dnf/", line 1383, in install
self._base.download_packages(pkgs_to_download, progress)

Steps To Reproduce1. Download full DVD ISO of 8.4beta1 from any site (I used and
2. Upload ISO to ESXi 7 datastore.
3. Create new VM (8 GB RAM, 250 GB drive) and select uploaded ISO for optical disc.
4. Accept most defaults in installer, connecting to Internet, creating root password and an administrator account.
5. Installer fails with checksum error in python installation.
Additional InformationI assumed, that even though my initial ISO download checksum matched, that there might be a problem, so I downloaded from a different mirror site. Results for second download were identical.

Both the Minimal and Boot ISOs work correctly and don't generate this error (there may be other errors but I've not encountered them).

I was unable to capture log files, but have screenshots of the error information (at least all the ones I could navigate to). These are attached.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello and thanks for report.
Please make sure that ISO file is correctly uploaded to datastore.
We've never experienced problems like that with any release including 8.4 beta. It was tested a lot in different scenarios including installation on VMware.

Is it possible to find in logs what exact package caused installation fail?
