    dnfdragora: dnf is locked by another application

    Dear all,

    I need some help and advice.

    When I launch dnfdragora, I am receiving the following error:

    Code:
    dnfdaemon client error occurred:
    g-io-error-quark: GDBus.Error:org.baseurl.DnfSystem.LockedError: dnf is locked by another application (36)
    The error message is clear to me but what is locking dnf and why?

    I am not performing any dnf-related task, at least not in the foreground.

    Has anyone had a similar issue?

    I am running Fedora 28 Xfce.

    Thank you for your help!

    Yours

    Something similar happens to me, and I have the impression that it's dnfdragora-updater in the background (but I'm not sure - I'm "null" ).When I deactivate dnfdragora-updater in "application autostart" this does not happen, in the end I have uninstalled the updater and everything is ok.

    Thanks for reporting back, Peter!

    Are you still prompted with new updates after removing dnfdragora-updater?

    I disabled the dnfdragora-updater and don't get the annoying dnf is locked situation.

    No, I check for updates manually. In general since yumex-dnf which was quite defective and problematic I use dnf (for my dnfdragora is a calamity: interface, ergonomics, dependency management etc ...). Normally I uninstall dnfdragora, I have it only in the pc that I use for experiments and tests. I hope that someday dnfdragora will be polished and usable as it was yum-extender.

    dnfdragora is the second thing I remove on any fresh install.

    Now, I'm intrigued, and want to know that is the first? I may have missed it elsewhere in your posts, but I am interested ... Could it be NetworkManager?
