When running update I got this error: Problem: package kernel-4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64 requires kernel-core-uname-r = 4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64, but none of the providers can be installed

Then trying to re-install kernel-core: Problem: package kernel-4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64 requires kernel-core-uname-r = 4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64, but none of the providers can be installed

This is the list of my repositories:

code

*fedora

*fedora-modular packages-microsoft-com-prod

*rpmfusion-free

*rpmfusion-free-updates unitedrpms

*updates

*updates-modular

I installed 29 over 27 (skipped 28) and had no errors or other messages during the process...

The current kernel version is 4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64

Hi, I had the same problem but I was stuck in kernel 4.19.5-300.fc29 (with an error like yours but related, I don't know why, with kernel 4.19.2-300.fc29).

I managed to solve the problem clicking on the notification related to "Important Software Updates", so installing update from the software manager worked. It restarted and updated to the last kernel and now everything seems to work properly.

I don't have any clue about why using the graphical way worked and from CLI didn't, but here you have how I solved.

Bye

EDIT: I've discovered the origin of the problem. I've followed this guide from fedora magazine ( https://fedoramagazine.org/boot-earli... ) to keep a specific version kernel locked because I've some problems with standby with newer versions. The python program that generated the lock didn't worked and I forgot to remove the lock. Now that I removed it, everything works fine!

Current kernel in the repository is kernel-4.19.6-300.fc29.x86_64 and running dnf update 'kernel*' should have updated you to that version. Do run dnf update 'kernel*' and show us what output you get.
