It seems to be because you are attempting to install mysql-workbench from an EL8 repository instead of choosing the EL9 repository for it to work on Rocky 9.

from this link: MySQL :: Download MySQL Yum Repository

I downloaded and updated the rpm, however the result is the same. Is there someway to download the Python libraries directly?

You downloaded the wrong rpm. See in the quote above it says EL8, you need the EL9 rpm or you use the RHEL9 repository from the link I provided. The python libraries will be found when you have the correct rpm.

EDIT:

after checking now, you cannot download the EL9 rpm. You have to use the repository which is accessible here: MySQL :: Begin Your Download however this also doesn’t seem to have a workbench version to install.

So until they release one, it cannot be installed it seems.
