I am trying to update Fedora using sudo dnf update. It lists the packages to be updated, downloads them, but then fails with this message:

Running transaction check
Transaction check succeeded.
Running transaction test
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction.
You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: Transaction test error:

I tried googling but I am at a loss here (I am not an expert). I noticed no other issue or problem with the system so I don't know where this new problem comes from. Thanks a lot!

EDIT:

I tried to do sudo dnf clean all and then sudo dnf update, but this didn't help. I post the full output below.

Then as suggested I tried sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2022-1bf06aa328 and the output of that is:

No security updates needed, but 97 updates available
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!

The output from sudo dnf update is below:

This is a strange error. What it's saying is that some of the files from the update to package systemd-udev to version 249.11-1.fc35.x86_64 won't work with the systemd version on the system which is systemd-249.7-2.fc35.x86_64.

But, systemd-udev is a subpackage of systemd, which means that it should be part of the same update transaction. Why isn't it trying to update that? Your updated question shows the answer: the system is in a bad state to start for some reason, and there are duplicates of the systemd package installed.

The sudo package-cleanup --cleandupes command (a synonym for `dnf remove --cleandups) usually should fix this — even for protected packages. I'm a little perplexed that you're getting that error.

I believe the following sequence (documented in the dnf man page) should work:

$ sudo dnf shell
> config protected_packages dnf
> remove --duplicates
> upgrade
> transaction run

HOWEVER, there is a non-zero chance that this will actually remove systemd and make it so your system won't boot. Watch carefully what it wants to do before saying Y to the prompt when you get to that after this sequence. It should have a Reinstalling section, and that should mention replacing systemd packages. If it does not, don't say Y — we'll have to figure something else out.

  • Okay, so, the mystery is: why isn't it trying to upgrade systemd to 249.11-1.fc35.x86_64? I think it might be that you have two versions of that package installed from some prior problem. Can you run dnf check, please? What does that say?

  • It may be that sudo dnf upgrade --allowerasing --best will clean this up, but I'm not sure.

    Think there is a failed transaction, and duplicate systemd packages are installed. You need to remove the duplicates. Check with: dnf repoquery --duplicates
