I am trying to get rid of some packages but it seems something is broken? Or am I missing something?

[elnour@Bjorn-Ubuntu ~]$ dnf ŕemove fedora-repos-rawhide yum-utils No such command: ŕemove. Please use /usr/bin/dnf --help It could be a DNF plugin command, try: "dnf install 'dnf-command(ŕemove)'"

please help! Thanks in advance

You made a typo, the command is not dnf ŕemove <package>.
The correct command instead is sudo dnf remove <package>.
Please note that elevated privileges (sudo) are required here.

Change ŕ to r in ŕemove

In addition, make sure you have root privileges.

Example: sudo dnf remove fedora-repos-rawhide yum-utils

Thanks! I never saw that symbol in my command?? When I saw it in the text that I pasted into this post I tried again but it didn't work. However now when I waited for a while and relogged it worked...
