Fedora 26 Update Issue

Hello All,

I recently installed Fedora 26 and the system is unable to apply the 25 updates listed. After I reboot the PC, the installation process takes place and at the end, still the 25 updates appears on the list. When I reboot, the system tells me that there are updates required and when I go to the update windows there is a message that says "unable to load updates".

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Try clearing the dnf and then retry:

Code:
dnf clean all


What this does is:

Code:
dnf clean dbcache
Removes cache files generated from the repository metadata. This forces DNF to regenerate the cache files the next time it is run.

Code:
dnf clean expire-cache
Removes local cookie files saying when the metadata and mirrorlists were downloaded for each repo. DNF will re-validate the cache for each repo the next time it is used.

Code:
dnf clean metadata
Removes repository metadata. Those are the files which DNF uses to determine the remote availability of packages. Using this option will make DNF download all the metadata the next time it is
run.

Code:
dnf clean packages
Removes any cached packages from the system.

Code:
dnf clean plugins
Tells all enabled plugins to eliminate their cached data.

Code:
dnf clean all
Does all of the above.

Hope you guys can help me.
