dnf makes it possible to configure a proxy with eg:

dnf config-manager --setopt proxy= repo1 repo2 --save

I'd like to unset that proxy with dnf, but this is not documented in I tried this, but it does not work:

$ sudo dnf config-manager --setopt proxy="" --save
Config error: Error parsing "proxy = u''": URL must be http, ftp or https not ""

Any idea?

edit /etc/dnf/dnf.conf and comment (#) or delete the line defining your proxy.

This is not enough: you also need to comment or delete the proxy option in all the repository files under /etc/yum.repos.d

That's why I was asking for a solution with dnf config-manager...

Only if you put the proxy line in there. By default a repo file does not have any proxy information, and the easiest way to set it is dnf.conf. No need to mess around in each and every of your .repo file
