So I recently reinstalled my rawhide after nearly four years after I installed a new SSD in my laptop, which is now blazingly fast (but more on that later).

The errors I ran into were very mysterious and not very self-explanatory:

Error: Connection activation failed: The Wi-Fi network could not be found

or

Error: Connection activation failed: (7) Secrets were required, but not provided.

or

Connection activation failed: (53) The Wi-Fi network could not be found.

I searched and searched, but the magic google machine could only point me to this post, which solved my problem as well.

The solution is simply to install the dhcp package. No need to run it or to start the server at boot. Apparently the package is needed for the wifi to work.
