I am running Fedora 27 and for some reason I am unable to install / detect rpmfusion-nonfree repos. The following are some helpful outputs

[shaurya@bk201 yum.repos.d]$ sudo dnf repolist all | grep rpm
Last metadata expiration check: 1:54:09 ago on Sun 30 Sep 2018 09:28:24 AM IST.
*rpmfusion-free                          RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 enabled:    574
rpmfusion-free-debuginfo                 RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled
rpmfusion-free-source                    RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled
*rpmfusion-free-updates                  RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 enabled:    263
rpmfusion-free-updates-debuginfo         RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled
rpmfusion-free-updates-source            RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled
rpmfusion-free-updates-testing           RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled
rpmfusion-free-updates-testing-debuginfo RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled
rpmfusion-free-updates-testing-source    RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 disabled

[shaurya@bk201 yum.repos.d]$ ls | grep rpm
rpmfusion-free.repo
rpmfusion-free-updates.repo
rpmfusion-free-updates-testing.repo

Not to mention whenever i try installing it, it says the following

[shaurya@bk201 Downloads]$ sudo dnf install rpmfusion-nonfree-release-27.noarch.rpm
[sudo] password for shaurya: 
Last metadata expiration check: 1:59:50 ago on Sun 30 Sep 2018 09:28:24 AM IST.
Package rpmfusion-nonfree-release-27-1.noarch is already installed, skipping.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!

Is there any way i can do a clean install of these repos or anything to get it working?

It should read "RPM Fusion for Fedora 27", not "RPM Fusion for Fedora 2 ". The config files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ are probably broken.

Try to "reinstall" it instead of "install" it. That is dnf reinstall ...... Failing that, you could remove the package rpmfusion-nonfree-release and then install it again from your downloaded rpm file.
