Only the sysadmin can install and upgrade packages.

You'll have to switch to a virtual terminal (press Ctrl+Alt+F3 to do so, press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to go back). Then log in as root and run dnf upgrade to update packages. Run dnf list aspell\* to list all available aspell packages. Alternatively, run dnf search aspell to search for aspell. Depending on your language, run dnf install aspell-de ("de" is for German, replace it with your language code).

dnf install aspell should help in installation, provided the package is there in the repo. For updating use dnf update <aspell> command or just simple dnf update which will update all the packages to the latest in the repo.

As a hacker who earned a BSEE inn 1982, i should be able to figure out the output above; but I figured this should be simple. Even using "upgrade":: same thing.. [root@psyche ~]# dnf upgrade Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'updates' [root@psyche ~]#
