    cannot update anymore: "Failed to obtain the transaction lock (logged in as: root)"

    I want to install system-config packags so I did
    Code:
     dnf install system-config-*
    , dnf downloaded all packages but then instalation failed

    Code:
    Running transaction check
    Transaction check succeeded.
    Running transaction test
    Transaction test succeeded.
    Running transaction
    Failed to obtain the transaction lock (logged in as: root).
    The downloaded packages were saved in cache till the next successful transaction.
    You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
    Error: Could not run transaction.
    I did
    Code:
     dnf clean packages
    and then try to install it again but failed to do so.
    It seems like a serious bug
