Sorry if this is a duplicate -- I vaguely recall there being a bug along these
lines, but I can't find it amongst all the other anaconda bugzilla reports ;-)

There appears to be an off-by-one problem with the package calculation in anaconda

When I do an everything install of RHL 9 in graphical mode, the progress meters
say 1394 packages will be installed (and the number installed + number left to
install always adds up to 1394).

If I look at /root/install.log after install, it says

Installing 1395 packages

(and then actually lists 1395 packages which were installed)

This is actually right as a side effect of how the comps package is handled
(it's kind of crappy and non-obvious, but with the way the comps package
currently has to be handled, there's not a lot that can be done about it)
