Like what? I thought that the only thing dnf does is update the system.
Oh, yeah, sure you can query metadata on available packages too.
I think there is a misunderstanding here on the use of "system".
I believe Adam is saying that upgrading packages for the underlying OS
is where the problem is, but you can upgrade packages in other layers of
the OS fine.
e.g. upgrading glibc can be an issue, upgrading vi should be fine.
Upgrading emacs is undefined.
