I'm running Fedora 28 on my Acer Laptop for more than a week now. Since I usually use it at university, I decided to use the update server provided by the university, https://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/.
At first this worked just fine but shortly after I changed the mirror, I found out that some packages that are listed in the fedora package list at https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/ were not available on my system. The error message is:
$ sudo dnf install docker Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:44 ago on Tue 29 May 2018 17:56:58 CEST. No match for argument: docker Error: Unable to find a match.
As soon as I revert my changes, I can install
apcalc without any issues.
Here is what I changed in
# comment out the following line: #metalink=... # add this line instead: baseurl=https://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/
Does anyone know how to fix this issue? If the issue cannot be fixed on my laptop, how can I debug/fix the issue on the server with the help of the server maintainer (who does not have a clue how Fedora works)?
