In the last weeks I started noticing some strange behavior in my system. I can not install application from "Software" gui and neither from CLI.
Now I am sure about this issue because:
[root@nuclear00 yum.repos.d]# dnf install cowsay Last metadata expiration check: 0:19:10 ago on Mon 11 Mar 2019 01:01:59 PM CET. No match for argument: cowsay Error: Unable to find a match
dnf clean all and
dnf upgrade already, it executes but nothing seems to change.
The repo looks fine, as you see in the pic below. I haven't deleted the content of this folder (not that i remember at least).
Another sign of why I believe something is not right, is both when i open "Software".
It prints this error message:
From askUbuntu -
Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.fwupd' Sometimes the short version, others the long one just like in this link.
Also, when trying to install "Telegram" from Software application, rpmfusion repo, the error is
Could not depsolve transaction; 1 problem detected:
Unfortunately, without reading the full error message. Not even from the log, which should be
/var/log/dnf.log. I can't find the log for the application
Software, which again, it is the GUI version of dnf/yum.
dnf.log writes the log happening for the cli only.
Good thing: I enabled the
flathub repo some time ago and at least I have now some more software, it is not a solution though.
I installed flathub because I noticed that from Software, everything disappeared. Software list was simply gone (and still is).
I re-followed this already but it doesn't seem it changed much: https://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
UPDATE: Do you see anything missing? Enabled/Disabled should be fine. Not that I want all of them enabled like source/debug etc.
