    Hi @Ignacio Ortiz de Zúñiga!

    You still have some mirror "asi-fs-n.contabo.net" in the URL instead of "vault.centos.org".

    So, I recommend you to check that you have the below line in the file /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Linux-AppStream.repo and don't have lines that start with "mirror" or "mirrorlist":

    A few days ago, the mirror of Cent OS 8 was deactivated. For this reason, it may happen that you can no longer install packages because the package source is not found. In this case please change the source under /etc/yum.repos.d to another mirror. All available mirrors can be found at https://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/.
