kdump encryotion crash - Anaconda screenshot from VM

Description of problem:
When kdump is disabled and encryption is then enabled, Anaconda crashes.

Note, reversing the order works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.6 DVD install

How reproducible:
Every time regardless of if physical or virtual.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 8.6 DVD installer
2. Click through the language screen
3. Go to Kdump first and on that screen uncheck "Enable kdump" and click done to return to previous screen.
4. Click Installation. Verify Automatic (can try Custom, just more steps to same error) and "Encrypt my data" is checked. Click done.
5. Enter password and click "Save passphrase".
6. Wait a second or two... 

Actual results:
The crash will happen quickly after Anaconda stops responding.

Expected results:
Anaconda doesn't crash and the installer completes.

Additional info:
If you reverse the order and encrypt first then disable kdump, it's fine.
Discovered by the Rocky testing team.

Thanks for reporting this issue! This bug will be fixed in a new release. Before that, a workaround is to create the encrypted disk partitioning first and then disable kdump.
