EDIT: Question originally titled "How does one get the same functionality as "yum --skip-broken" with dnf?". Have changed name to what I meant but have not changed question out of respect for those who commented/answered.

According to this site, dnf update does the same as yum --skip-broken by default; however, I ran this command, with rawhide-kernel-nodebug repo enabled and got:

Skipping packages with broken dependencies:
 kernel               x86_64  4.3.0-0.rc1.git0.1.fc24  fedora-rawhide-kernel-nodebug  45 k
 kernel-core        x86_64  4.3.0-0.rc1.git0.1.fc24  fedora-rawhide-kernel-nodebug  20 M
 kernel-modules  x86_64  4.3.0-0.rc1.git0.1.fc24  fedora-rawhide-kernel-nodebug  18 M

How can I install rawhide non-debugging kernel in Fedora 22? (p.s. F22 currently supports kernel 4.1, I need 4.2 for my satellite tuner card).

EDIT: Apologies, I have misunderstood the meaning of --skip-broken โ€“ I was following instructions from a site (whose URL I cannot recall), which gave instructions for yum and suggested that --skip-broken was necessary to ignore broken dependencies. What I actually meant was how can I install the rawhide kernel ignoring broken dependencies.

that is skip-broken functionality. Your output shows the packages are being skipped because of broken dependencies. You're answering your own question, perhaps rephrase it to ie "How to install rawhide debug kernel on F22" ?

Try removing the rawhide nodebug repo first then run.

sudo dnf --releasever 23 update kernel\* linux-firmware

and if that fails

sudo yum-deprecated --skip-broken --releasever 23 update kernel\* linux-firmware

Thank you โ€“ the question was wrongly worded, but you understood and your answer worked for me (without even removing the nodebug repo).
