Re: dnf problems

Can you give us exact command that you are using to invoke this?

I am guessing something might get corrupted on unsuccessful system upgrade. Is this likely to have happened?

Re: dnf problems

first try

sudo dnf clean all

if that makes no difference

maybe try rebuilding the rpm database?

Re: dnf problems

Try to search the package, sometimes they are case sensitive or have something at the end
