I encountered this error when deploying the Hosted Engine via Cockpit:

The important bit is this: Failed to execute stage 'Initializing': '%' must
be followed by '%' or '(', found: '%JUUj'"

Hey! Those are the last few characters of the admin password. Note that I
don't mean the root password to the VM, but the one for the "admin" user of
the web interface. I added some debug lines to the Ansible play to see the
answerfile that was being generated.

OVESETUP_CONFIG/adminPassword=str:&6&yGfcWf#b%JUUj

Apparently engine-setup can no longer handle an answerfile with a "%"
character in it. This same password worked in 4.3.

Once I changed the admin password, installation progressed normally.
