You have i686 on the x86_64 system, you need to find the 64 bit version of android studio or remove all the i686 packages and try to install.

Fedora supports multi-lib. You can run 32-bit applications on a 64-bit install. The 32-bit libraries are available in the 64-bit package repositories.

It should work if you do a dnf upgrade first. At least upgrade the installed glibc package so that it's the same version as the 32-bit glibc that you're trying to install. I have both installed on my computer.

I tried this, but after dnf upgrade and dnf update, got same error.

It can't be the same error, so what is the error now?

Do i have to update distro or glib package? Because I did upgrade and update the distro, but unfortunately it shows the same error again.. I think its conflicts between 64bits and 32bits files, but have no more knowledge about this errors and how fedora handles things.

Please post the actual output you are getting from dnf now because it can't be the same as what you have in the original question.
