A workaround would be to download a fixed dnf package and install it
manually with RPM.
I am assuming one has to remove packages to be upgraded or downgraded before
installing new ones when using rpm. (I have forgotten most of my rpm knowledge
– except rpm -qf.)
You could also download an older version and install this to
solve the problem.
It seems this is the only way forward except: dnf 3.0.1 is broken, 3.0.2
requires Python 3.7 ABI but 3.6.5 is installed. dnf 2.7.5 also seems to
require Python 3.7 API and there are a number of other packages already
installed that do not allow 2.7.5 to be installed. This is a bit of a mess,
and I am not sure how to proceed. It seems though installing Python 3.7 over
3.6.5 may just be the way forward.
Given the importance of dnf I wonder of there are some tests missing from the
Rawhide build so as to avoid people being allowed to upgrade to a broken dnf?
