The CentOS 8 life cycle has been cut short with the news of its EOL in December 2021. RHEL revealed it would be shifting focus from CentOS Linux to CentOS Stream.

Most CentOS users who have updated their systems to the latest version have already expressed their concerns.

While CentOS 8 EOL is scheduled for 2021, CentOS 7 will be supported until 2024. Therefore, if you haven’t gotten the chance to upgrade your CentOS 7 servers, don’t bother doing so.
