    dnf: Error: No packages marked for upgrade

    I've run in lxterminal 0.3.0:

    Code:
    # dnf makecache
    Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:31 ago on Fri 12 Jan 2018 01:16:14 PM CET.
    Metadata cache created.
    # rpm --rebuilddb
    # dnf --refresh --releasever=26  upgrade-minimal lxterminal
    Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:00 ago on Fri 12 Jan 2018 01:15:50 PM CET.
    Package lxterminal available, but not installed.
    No match for argument: lxterminal
    Error: No packages marked for upgrade.
    # dnf --refresh --releasever=26  upgrade lxterminal
    Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:00 ago on Fri 12 Jan 2018 01:16:14 PM CET.
    Package lxterminal available, but not installed.
    No match for argument: lxterminal
    Error: No packages marked for upgrade.

    Is it possible to fix it ?

    dnf remove lxterminal

    Perhaps try db_dump and db_load as outlined here:

    Thank you. Unfortunately, it didn't help.

    Re: dnf: Error: No packages marked for upgrade

    I know that yesterday the fedora repositories were giving error 503 for a few hours. But today they are fine, maybe that de-synced your system just at the wrong time ?
    I wonder what "dnfdragora" may say to your issues.

    Re: dnf: Error: No packages marked for upgrade

    Looks to me like the symptions of a corrupted rpm database which your rpm command did not fix. I wonder if you have the upgraded rpm package in your f26 to use to rebuild the database. In the repositories for the f26 I used, the initial release package was rpm-4.13.0.1-14 but the upgraded one was rpm-4.13.0.2-1.

    the full sequence to clear and rebuild rpm database is below:

    Code:
    # rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
    # rpm --rebuilddb

    I had that problem some time ago. Tried everything to rebuild the database but it was impossible. I had to backup data and go for a fresh installation.

    Thank you for reply. That's most probable solution in my case too.

    Re: dnf: Error: No packages marked for upgrade

    I've created list of packages upgraded/installed during F25 --> F26 upgrade and installed after it. ( /var/log/dnf.log* ). Then I've run
    Code:
    dnf install
    on that list. All packages were successfully installed. Is this solution 100 % safe ?
