My dnf is broken

output of dnf commands:

[allan@fedora ~]$ sudo dnf update
Traceback (most recent call last):

Hi, welcome to the discussion.
Is it only “update” that causes errors?
could “dnf install dnf” help?

Does this work?
Why not “yum install dnf”?

Aren’t these all this all the same? yum and dnf are both symlinks to /usr/bin/dnf-3

Do sudo dnf clean all and sudo dnf upgrade --refresh do anything or just throw errors?

Shouldn’t that be “dnf reinstall dnf”.
you cannot install something that is already installed.

I see

Dnf Download (DEB, RPM, TXZ, ZST) shows a way to rpm the dnf
(if necessary remove old dnf)


Reinstall this packages:

With RPM

rpm -ivh --force

One user could confirm over Telegram and he told me works.
