After updating fedora to 32 on my Dell e6430 I came up with error that I can't enable wifi. I enable it and then it becomes disabled again. I tried to downgrate iwlwifi to 102 revision and it worked, but after reboot it doesn't work again.

[bert@fedya ~]$ nmcli

nmcli shows that wifi is not available

I tried to change state of switch, but it doesn't help either

Unblocking rfkill doesn't work either
