Powersupply failed during upgrade

Did standard dnf upgrade and after rebooting and installing phase the systems powersupply failed. After fixing the powersupply the system booted to 27. So I tried running the commands again but that didn't cause a reboot-install. So I did a

dnf distro-sync --disableplugin=protected_packages --releasever=28

which mostly worked. But the system kind of sees itself as 27 as there are a number of packages that didn't update:

libyubikey.x86_64 lsscsi.x86_64
lua-filesystem.x86_64 mc.x86_64
mdadm.x86_64 ocaml-srpm-macros.noarch

And I can not get them to update to version 28.

Anyone have a idea how to fix this?

That's perfectly normal, a mass rebuild hasn't yet occurred for Fedora 28, some packages are still from f27.

For some packages the version you had in fc27 will be the same version available in fc28. These packages are not updated. Sometime the fc27 version is actually newer than the fc28 version.

Some package maintainers don't even update the version suffix, so when these packages are rebuild in fc28 they will still have the old version suffix. Try run

dnf list NearTree

and see some real old version suffix.

OK well, it does appear to be working!
