I recently upgraded Fedora 22 Workstation to Fedora 23 using the dnf system-upgrade method. The upgrade went fine overall. After, I tried to follow the recommendation on possible post-upgrade tasks but it confuses me.

Running dnf list extras: I can still understand having all sorts of fc22 kernels listed, even though they are installed and configured to be booted by grub. Just a little bit weird.

My question is in regards to dnf autoremove, which returns:

Why is that? Do I really don't need them? Why is kernel-devel.4.4.6-300.fc23 listed? I think, I need this package for my damn VirtualBox, maybe not? Is recordmydesktop wrongly listed? Just mark it as user-installed, or what?

Before, when I ran dnf autoremove for the first time, a few days ago, I declined any transaction because I found it suspicious but even kexec-tools was listed among the to-be-removed packages. How can a stupid end-user like me know what to do?

Thanks for your feedback!

edited: I noticed another weird behavior which could have been triggered by the upgrade process but I decided to ask it as a separate question.

fedora upgrade.... it a footprint for upgrade'a normal. it a same Fedora 27/28......dnf upgrade!!

sometime, it a upgrade make a some problem like that do not support GUI and bit a error...bug... how about use Fedora29?'s a good operation System with me.

Linux System very stable...check dnf system to update and storage repsitory to update also, it's a need to back up before system touch to update or prepare system to protect fault.
