I wasn't aware of epel-next, is it the EPEL for CentOS Stream or what

It is supposed to be layered on top of the regular epel repository because it doesn't have all the epel packages.
epel-next builds off centos-stream instead of RHEL, like regular epel does.  It only has those packages that need to be rebuilt in stream due to some library or version update.
In this case, qt5 was updated in stream from 5.12 to 5.15, thus all the kde desktop needed to be rebuilt (and we updated kde as well).  Once RHEL 8.5 is released, I will rebuild all those packages on normal epel8 and we won't need them in the epel-next repository.

If you are running centos-stream, and do a
  dnf install epel-release
you should automatically get epel-next-release.
But it looks like if you are doing a kickstart install, that doesn't work, so it will have to be listed.
