    Re: different updates and why

    dnf and dnfdragora use a mirrorlist. A mirror list consists of about 30+ sites around the world that host copies of the repositories.
    At the time dnfdgragora ran, the mirror that was chosen was more (or could be less ) up to date than the mirror site that dnf software chose to use.

    If you see more software with dnfdragora, then run sudo dnf update --refresh and dnf will go looking to update it's repository list from a more recently updated mirror.


    But normally, within a few more hours, both dnf and dnfdragora will correspond.

    Interesting web sites list
