By naming convention, package names like
*.x86_64 0:8.0.17-1.el8
mean they are for RedHat 8.
Reach out for .el7 packages, for RHEL 7!

Note that Oracle mysql will replace the RedHat mariadb.

Figured out the issue. If you look at the output for the rpm package name ... See bold highlighted.

Marking mysql-community-server-8.0.17-1.el8.x86_64.rpm to be installed
ël8 indicates enterprise linux 8 while I have Linux 7 as mentioned in the OP.

Will try the with the correct source packages.
