After dnf 2.6.2, there're short command abbreviation available. But in recent updates such short commands disappeared (I'm not sure which update, but ever since I upgraded to Fedora 29, those short commands vanished).

Does anyone know how this happened? And if by any chance it's due to my misconfiguration, can anyone tell me how to fix this?

  • What "short command abbreviation" are you referring to? I've never heard of these things. Nov 26 '18 at 14:25
  • @MichaelHampton i.e. if you want dnf install you can use dnf in for short, this reference wiki.mageia.org/en/… provides more details if you're interested.

Dnf removed the abbreviations in this commit. They suggest using bash completions to make using dnf faster.
