Sorry, I did not see more information.
My apologies, in this case dnf doesn't print the list of packages
because it didn't get that far.
By the way, I rerun
dnf install polymake
And it did it right !!!
It looks llke that every time that I update this machine there is an issue. and
then these issues may disappear! After the reboot?
Possibly because dnf refreshed the cache the next time and the packages
were then available? Hard to say.
Why do I have some many i686 packages installed ?
It seems that wine requires a lot of i686 packages.
Yes, wine pulls in a lot of 32-bit packages which are necessary for its use.
How can I clean the i686 packages without uninstalling the x86_64
You can run "dnf remove *.i686" and that will show you also which 64-bit
packages are depending on them.
