[Koha] Install Koha on AlmaLinux 8

I have finally installed Koha 21.11.04 on AlmaLinux 8 and I was able to
start the Web Installer.
Everything seems to be working fine.
However, when I get to the creation of the "Koha Administrator Patron" (in
Onboarding section), after filling in all the required data, I always get
this error message: "The patron has not been created! Cardnumber or Userid
may already exist." and I cannot proceed with the Web Installer.
Does anyone have an idea what can cause this issue?
Thanks and have a nice day!
