I got this problem while mounting with loop

I get the error “Failed to configure loop device.”
I’m trying to mount a CentOS iso to do a Network system boot, but it is giving me this problem while configuring the HTTP Server, any fix on this?

The command I’m trying is this one mount -o loop CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1611.iso /mnt

Try to upgrade and reboot:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo reboot

Load the module manually if the issue persists:

sudo modprobe loop
