I tried to install "variety" manually via a downloaded rpm from http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/sourceforge/p/po/postinstaller/fedora/releases/23/x86_64/variety-0.5.5-1.fc23.noarch.html
The installation failed and now I would like to fix it. However, using simple
dnf commands that came to mind do not allow to install, reinstall or remove the package:
✘ foo@bar > ~/Downloads > sudo dnf reinstall ./variety-0.5.5-1.fc23.noarch.rpm Last metadata expiration check performed 0:05:14 ago on Tue Feb 16 07:51:51 2016.

How can I fix this? Should I manually delete the package contents?
