Please update.

You have two options:

  1. Installing it system wide using rpm-ostree: rpm-ostree install distrobox
  2. Installing it directly from upstream: GitHub - 89luca89/distrobox: Use any linux distribution inside your terminal. Enable both backward and forward compatibility with software and freedom to use whatever distribution you’re more comfortable with. Mirror available at: https://gitlab.com/89luca89/distrobox
