You need to install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade package first.
Thanks, Vitaly! This was mighty confusing. First, the recommended approach
by DNF itself doesn't work:
$ sudo dnf offline-distrosync
No such command: offline-distrosync. Please use /usr/bin/dnf --help
It could be a DNF plugin command, try: "dnf install
$ sudo dnf install 'dnf-command(offline-distrosync)'

No match for argument: dnf-command(offline-distrosync)
Error: Unable to find a match: dnf-command(offline-distrosync)
Second, a man page for dnf-offline-* is missing even if you install the
right plugin, so it's not clear that you have it at all.
And third, why on earth is this bundled with system-upgrade, what is their
relationship? I want to perform "dnf upgrade" (or distrosync) in a safe
manner, and so doing it offline with "dnf offline-upgrade" seems natural.
So it's an offline version of upgrade/distrosync, and it's closer to those
commands than to a system-upgrade command, in my eyes.
Daniel, see above for some tips on improvements, thanks :-)
