There is an update (or test update) of libdb for F25 that, when
installed, breaks the rpm database because it is incompatible. The dnf
update completes, and then hangs (at least it did on my system). The
fix is to remove the old rpm databases (this might be optional), and
rebuild the rpm databases.
rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.00? # optional?
That's not deleting the RPM database, just removing temporary files that
I did a reboot to sync everything that uses libdb (anything that
the Berkeley db). It might be possible just to restart affected
applications if that isn't an option. That worked for my mail client
before I rebooted.
A reboot would be recommended, but restarting any affected applications
should be sufficient.
