Thanks for the detailed explanation! I got it to work by downgrading the package as you wrote.

The breakage happened due to:

- ansible-core recently moved to python 3.9

- oVirt needs several python libraries in its use of ansible, some of
which are packaged by oVirt. Those are not yet built for python 3.9.

I performed a deployment using hosted-engine. This goes on step further, but 
fails while waiting for the host:
[ INFO  ] TASK [ovirt.ovirt.hosted_engine_setup : Obtain SSO token using 
username/password credentials]
[ INFO  ] ok: [localhost]
[ INFO  ] TASK [ovirt.ovirt.hosted_engine_setup : Wait for the host to be up]

[ ERROR ] fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "Host is not 
up, please check logs, perhaps also o
n the engine machine"}

On the hosted-engine, I see in

But netaddr is installed:
python38-netaddr might be installed, but python39-netaddr is probably not.

[root@ovirt-engine-test host-deploy]# pip3 install netaddr
WARNING: Running pip install with root privileges is generally not a good idea. 
Try `pip3 install --user` instead.
Requirement already satisfied: netaddr in /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages

Any ideas what I can do?
For the time being, try to downgrade ansible-core to 2.12, or the last
version requiring python 3.8.

We merged this patch to the engine master branch (to eventually become 4.5.3):

Going forward:

1. We hope to finish porting the engine to CS9 soon, and if this
proves stable, consider dropping support for CS8.

2. We might try, in the time being, to build the missing dependencies
for python 3.9. It's not clear if it's worth the effort.
