Problem with installed package podman

I’m trying to install docker on a CentOs 8 machine Linux hostname 4.18.0-305.12.1.el8_4.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Aug 11 01:59:55 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux] by following the instructions here: Install Docker Engine on CentOS | Docker Documentation and even if I made sure to run:

sudo yum remove docker \
                  docker-client \
                  docker-client-latest \
                  docker-common \
                  docker-latest \
                  docker-latest-logrotate \
                  docker-logrotate \
                  docker-engine

I get this ugly huge error when trying sudo yum install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io

I had the same issue and it resolved after trying these steps mentioned in the link below
