      In an up to date RHEL 8.9 system, installing packages from EPEL has started failing recently (it was working on May 8th and started failing May 9th) with the following error:

      # dnf -v list --available

      Aborted (core dumped)

      Once I disable the EPEL repo, dnf works as expected.


      Stacktrace didn't show up in journal, so I've generated a core file and this is what I've been able to get from gdb:
