According to the book I am reading, yum stores settings in /etc/yum.conf file and stores downloaded packages in /var/cache/yum folder.

Neither of these two files/folders is present in my fresh install of Fedora 25. Any idea where should I look to get access to these files?


yum has been superseded by dnf in Fedora. dnf provides better dependency resolution but otherwise mirrors yum commands very closely. Look at `/etc/dnf/dnf.conf' and '/var/cache/dnf'. Oddly, '/etc/yum.repos.d' still contains the repositories you configure.
