Installation Profiles seem to be broken in D8

Problem
Not able to install Drupal using an installation profile. Installation profile was setup exactly as the Drupal.org documentation describes. https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/creating-distributions/how-to-write-a-drup…

I’ve also tried 5 other known working profiles and none of them work.

Results
If your profile contains modules that are not in core, you will consistently get the following message:

Required modules not found.

The following modules are required but were not found. Move them into the appropriate modules subdirectory, such as /modules. Missing modules:

After this message will be a running list of all of your modules that are needed for your profile. (See this image: http://jasonglisson.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-10.27.56-PM.png)

How to replicate issue

  1. Download Drupal 8’s latest version.
  2. Place a Installation Profile in the /profiles directory.
  3. Go to your sites install.php page to run through the installation via your browser.
  4. Choose your installation Profile at the Profiles screen.

Question
I’m trying to find a way around this issue. It doesn’t seem like there is a fix for this and I’ve been researching it all day.
