Centos 7 Template Cannot be Installed on Qubes OS 4.1.0-rc4

The following attempt to install CentOS-7 template via dom0 terminal / command: sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community qubes-centos-7

results with the following error message: qvm-template: error: Same version of template ‘Centos 7’ not found

OS Details:
xen_version: 4.14.2
Linux 5.10.76.1.fc32.qubes.x86_64

The same command works in Qubes 4.0, this could be a bug?

Centos 7 isn’t available for v4.1

https://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/qubes/repo/yum/r4.1/templates-community-testing/rpm/

unlike 4.04

Not a bug.
You can install Centos 8 from qubes-templates-community-testing - it
hasn’t yet migrated to the standard repository.
Centos 7 isn’t built for 4.1

I never presume to speak for the Qubes team.
When I comment in the Forum or in the mailing lists I speak for myself.

You may also wish to enable testing repositories and then use qvm-template-gui to check which templates are available for Qubes 4.1.

You may also wanted to keep in mind that Centos 8 is deprecated and updating is not possible, so we are waiting for Centos8 Stream template
