    dnf problem

    Hi
    I have installed Fedora 30 on a Laptop. Somehow the 'dnf' process became corrupted. Possibly a premature end to my 'dnf distro-sync' which I have been running to keep up with new releases. Now when I run my normal 'dnf distro-sync' I get the following output.

    Code:
    [root@LENOVO-WIFI ~]# dnf clean all
    67 files removed
    [root@LENOVO-WIFI ~]#  dnf distro-sync
    Fedora 30 openh264 (From Cisco) - x86_64                                                                                                                                                                      2.3 kB/s | 5.1 kB     00:02

    Error: 
     Problem: The operation would result in removing the following protected packages: systemd
    (try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)
    [root@LENOVO-WIFI ~]#
    Can anyone give me direction on how to overcome this issue. I have tried various approaches with little success. I removed the /var/lib/rpm/__db* and used 'rpm --rebuilddb' and tried to use 'rpm' to remove the duplicate downloads with no success. Thanks...

    Re: dnf problem

    Where should I post a formal BUG on the 'dnf' process?

    Re: dnf problem

    I'd try bugzilla, but also post on Ask Fedora since the devs tend to check things out there.

    Right. What is the URL for 'Ask Fedora'? I tend to get lost in all the different logins to different things Fedora related.
