Bug Description

nova-libvirt, nova-compute-ironic-build containers fail to build on RHEL-8:

Error: No available modular metadata for modular package

Related to last dnf change:

    - Remove patch to not fail when installing modular RPMs without modular metadata

Some time ago we uploaded the advanced virtualization packages in custom-deps repository in rhui as it was not possible to synchronize the repo using native synchronization functionality from rhui. This does not includes modules metadata, just pure RPMS. Now, as pointed in the message, dnf update does not allow to install modular rpms without modules metadata.

jpena found the associated bug [1] and patch [2] that caused this:
[1] -
[2] -

AV is still not available in RHUI cert and RHUI custom repo doesn't have an option to add modules md.
Looking at [2] one workaround could be to rebuild AV RPMs removing RPMTAG_MODULARITYLABEL in the process.

rhel8 build containers jobs passed in PS7. advanced virtualization rebuilds are now in and so jobs should pass now.
