I have been running Apper software manager and it keeps telling me:

The service that is responsible for handling user requests is out of memory.
Please close some programs or restart your computer.

Failed to load system repo: I/O error

while sudo dnf update gives:

error: db5 error(-30973) from dbenv->open: BDB0087 DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db5 -  (-30973)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
Error: Error: rpmdb open failed

Now I have almost 400 GB HDD space free. My PC isn't laggy so I'm guessing my RAM isn't too stretched. I only just rebooted my Fedora installation, after it being off for almost a fortnight (not due to errors, just been using other PCs). I am running 32 bit Fedora 22.

Just because your computer isn't laggy doesn't mean that Apper isn't using up most of your RAM. Please run the commands free -h and uname -r in a terminal, and report the results as a comment, so that we can see if you're running tighter than you think on RAM.

Just got this message from apper 0.9.2-6 Plasmoid when immediately after booting my F23 ...there is nothing in the 8GiB of that machine at that point in time.

Sounds like a bug. But maybe not in apper, maybe in PackageKit.
