Using LIMA on RHEL8 fails to download metadata for repo “rhel-8-for-x86_64-baseos-rpms”. What should I do?

This is a common problem which happens now and then, but the real source of error is difficult to identify. Nevertheless, the workaround is quick and easy: clean up the current repo data, refresh the subscription-manager and update the whole operating system. This can be done with the following commands:

dnf clean all

rm -frv /var/cache/dnf

subscription-manager refresh

dnf update -y
