When running dnf upgrade, I ran into the following problem:

 Package            Arch            Version              Repository        Size
Skipping packages with broken dependencies:
 miniupnpc          x86_64          2.0-1.fc24           updates           51 k

Transaction Summary
Skip  1 Package

How can I fix the broken dependencies for that package? And how can I find out what program actually uses/requires miniupnpc? How Can I find out what exact dependency of the package is broken (tried to use dnf -v update miniupnpc but that didn't help)?

As of @sergiomb 's answer below, I ran dnf -b update miniupnpc, which returns:

Error: package classified-ads-0.11-1.fc24.x86_64 requires, but none of the providers can be installed

That's a problem with classified-ads, right? What's the right way to fix this problem?

for quick fix you may do: dnf remove classified-ads

Yes, maintainer (me) has been a bit slow to respond to soname changes. There is now waiting to be tested until it is pushed to stable. Please test this before it causes more trouble.

There is also a new upstream release of classified-ads coming, before that getting translations in order in would be a big hit for everyone :)

Please run

should give you the answer

dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing repoquery miniupnpc-2.0 --requires

ah you need remove classified-ads or ask to rebuild it . I already ask to rebuild classified-ads on
