Centos8

Centos8

New Contributor

I am getting an error installing ambari-server-2.7.4.0 on Centos8.   It seems as though it can't resolve conflict with python.  Although I have Python36 installed, it is still asking for python2.6 or greater.   I read your many responses but they did not help with my situation.  Any support on this matter will be appreciated.  Thanks.

The best technical reference before you embark on deploying your cluster is to check the compatibility of the different moving parts of HDP/Cloudera binaries against an operating system of your choice, the first source of truth is please filter all the possible valid options using   supportmatrix cloudera/hortonworks tool

Hortonworks and Cloudera do run exhaustive tests on a particular Operating system before certifying it as production-ready and from the about  RHEL/Centos 7.7 are not yet certified so I highly doubt whether  RHEL/Centos 8  is certified that explains the Python errors you are encountering.

This is the exact error message after I execute yum install ambari-server

Problem: conflicting requests

- nothing provides python >= 2.6 needed by ambari-server-2.7.0.0-897.x86_64
