Thanks Vladislav for that help - half the problem solved. There is still a problem with the mirrors or Cisco Open 264.
I am getting this message-

dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=34

Does this make sense?

Hi Vladislav, Ithink I am out of my depth . I entered the first of your commands and this whole page came up

It looks like I entered both commands. I do not seem to have control, and also I do not know how to edit.
I may have to give up.

Hi Vladislav, Still not working. I had previously looked up the code 404 and it seems that it should be 443, could that have anything to do with the problem?
This is what I got this time,

Somehow the debuginfo repo is also enabled, so it is giving the error as well. This will fix that.

Thankyou Vladislav and thank you JV computersavvy, I could not have upgraded without your solutions to my problems. Well done.
