Gitlab ce Pull error

I’m fairly new to Gitlab and busy with the upgrade on a new server (RHEL) with podman installed.
Followed all the steps in this guide - https://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-gitlab-with-docker-on-ubuntu-2004/

When I try to pull the Gitlab ce image I get the following error and not sure How to proceed , any assistance or link that can assist.

I have tried using nexus to pull the same image but still the same error.

podman pull company.co.za:0000/gitlablatest/gitlab/gitlab-ce
Trying to pull company.co.za:0000/gitlablatest/gitlab/gitlab-ce…

Error: error pulling image “company.co.za:0000/gitlablatest/gitlab/gitlab-ce”: unable to pull company.co.za:0000/gitlablatest/gitlab/gitlab-ce: unable to pull image: Error initializing source docker://company.co.za:0000/gitlablatest/gitlab/gitlab-ce:latest: error loading registries configuration: Near line 34 (last key parsed ‘’): Key ‘registries’ was already created as a hash.

Also this command - podman pull gitlab/gitlab-ee:latest
Error: error pulling image “gitlab/gitlab-ee:latest”: unable to pull gitlab/gitlab-ee:latest: error getting default registries to try: Near line 34 (last key parsed ‘’): Key ‘registries’ was already created as a hash.
