DNF is by far not as fast as pretended and as the additional overhead
and frankly most of the time it's slower, just refuses to just work with
"dnf update *.rpm", gives no useful messages in case of dependency
problems and the whole autocompletion is laughable slow compared to YUM
not talking about missing features like non-ported yum-utils or
essential plugins linke "dnf update --security"
until today nobody was able to show me something which is *really*
faster where it does matter and given that /var/cache/dnf is nearly as
large as the whole OS of some fedora production machines i miss the
improvements and see only drawbacks
