    Question I have extras package from previous versions of Fedora ! What I have to do ?

    Hi. Today I discovered many new commands in DNF ! One of them is:

    sudo dnf repoquery --extras

    which show packages that are NOT further existing in repositories.

    It show my the following:

    Code:
    sudo dnf repoquery --extras

    Regarding kernel packages, they are understandable to me & I know why there are still existing on my system .....

    But the problem is with other packages from Fedora 24, 26, & 28 !
    I removed xviewer because I know that Cinnamon shifted to Eye of mate viewer.
    But what about "pam_pkcs11-0:0.6.8-8.fc24.x86_64" ??

    1) Do I have to remove it also ? I do not know about what it is ?!

    2) And in general what we should do with such packages ?!! Remove all of them ?!!

    3) why such packages - apart from kernel packages - not shown in "sudo dnf autoremove" ?!!

    I removed all of them with exception of kernel. All things are okay & no any problem post-removal.

    Issue solved.

    Only one question: why these packages - apart from kernel packages - not appearing in result of "sudo dnf autoremove" & "sudo dnf repoquery --unneeded" ??
