Before 20.25.1, if you had an existing swap on a regular partition or a logical volume

this is no longer the case and you wind up with no swap at all. You might want to not
reformat that swap because you are using UUID and you have another system (multiboot) also
using that swap and refering to it also by UUID. This problem is reported by:
Again, I have attached a tested patch to correct the problem to the bugzilla report.
This swap problem was introduced by changes made in 20.25.1.
It might be related to this:
Since systemd is auto mounting certain partitiontypeguids, they don't need to be in
fstab. There are few bugs filed as a result of the ensuing confusion. So it might be new
behavior in anaconda 20.25.1 to ignore the request to reuse existing swap by adding it to
fstab since it knows systemd is going to use it in any case.
