You need to talk to Amazon. They have their own EPEL repository,
inconsistently forked from EPEL and enabled with the
"amazon-linux-extras" command, along with a variety of other
not-really-yum-repo-managed tools like mock and ansible. It's
problematic.. And don't let that incomplete EPEL channel get mixed
with the official EPEL repository in your configurations.

The time spent hunting for workarounds might be better spent migrating
to RHEL or CentOS, which is likely to be more compatible with Fedora
packages backported through EPEL. The decision to leapfrog to python
3.7 was problematic, since it also puts them ahead of RHEL 8 and
CentOS 8's releases of python 3.6 and complicates EPEL support
