I recently updated from Fedora 24 Workstation to Fedora 25 Workstation via Gnome Software Center. Everything was downloaded, loaded and installed correctly. The only thing that I am having an issue with is my terminal and specifically DNF commands. Whatever I try to do, be it sudo dnf install whatever, sudo dnf update, or whatever else, it does not work. It asks then for my root password but then after I type it in and press Enter, it does not do anything. Previously, on Fedora 24 it worked like a charm.

Screenshot from the terminal window: image description Then it rests like this and does nothing.

Any suggestions, please? Thank you.

Don't know how helpful this might be, but please take a read through this Fedora documentation regarding upgrading, and perhaps try to follow their suggested steps regarding cleanup afterwards. I'm no kind of expert in Fedora (or anything else ;0)) but it could be some temp file left lying around, or perhaps some of the old rpm files?

You could try to do this using a different terminal like vim - which should be installed by default. Or download one via software manager, and run the commands?

The "sudo dnf clean all" command fixed my issue. (This command was written in the provided wiki.) Thank you very much!
