================================================== ==============================
Remove 58 Packages

Freed space: 143 M
Is this ok [y/N]: N
Operation aborted.

Please notice the following:

1) I run "sudo dnf autoremove" just before system upgrade, so I had no any unused package just before upgrading.

2) I had no any error message during upgrading.

3) after upgrading I check for possible duplicated packages but result was NO ANY DUPLICATED PACKAGES.

4) after upgrading till now I never install/remove any thing unless from command line. I use dnfdragora & GNOME software center just to view packages & their names & searching them no more.

5) I upgraded system from 24 to 26 by tty terminal

6) I upgraded system packages (update system) also by tty terminal.

So, what are your opinion: safe to remove these packages or not ?

Please notice that one of these packages "control-center-filesystem x86_64 1:3.24.3-1.fc26" measured ZERO KB ! How this ?

What it's relation to this issue

I admit auto removing stuff installed from command line looks a bit odd as I am not sure what is the behavior with marking as "user install" for a package installed from command line. You can mark some packages as user installed if you don't want this behavior "dnf mark install <package-specs>...". For what you want to keep you be the judge, I would say none of these packages are system critical.

control-center-filesystem as the name suggests, just provides a directory tree that other packages can depend on hence why is so small..

As to why autoremove removes now and not two releases back, maybe dependencies changed and new packages does not depend on these anymore.

1) I run:

sudo dnf distro-sync

result was: NO THING TO DO !!

2) regarding: "@@comandline" this term - as I know (please correct to me) - mean package installed as a local .rpm package not from repositories, isn't it ?? But HOW THIS ???? I did not installed any thing as a local .rpm package unless Canon drivers (2 packages only then I remove them) !!
