I just upgraded to Fedora 29 and tried to install texlive using

sudo dnf install texlive-scheme-full

but received the following error

 Problem: package texlive-scheme-full-8:svn44177-20.fc29.noarch requires texlive-collection-binextra, but none of the providers can be installed
  - conflicting requests
  - nothing provides texlive-xindy needed by texlive-collection-binextra-8:svn47945-20.fc29.noarch

I'm a Linux newbie and would welcome any suggestions as to how to fix this.

I was able to install texlive-scheme-basic but it's missing many packages I need, and when I tried to use tlmgr to install them the command wasn't recognised, so I would also be glad to hear how one should install individual packages.

That is a problem reported in REDHat Bugzilla :

This packages are on QA Fedora 29 testing repository see the last comment to resolve the issue :

Use :

sudo dnf install texlive-scheme-full --enablerepo=updates-testing

NOTE : if you find any problem just add you to CC and comment in REDHAT bugzilla

It is often better to only install the texlive packages one needs, since texlive is really a big package set and increases the amount of updates one receives when texlive is updated from time to time.
