If any one can help me I will appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

You should probably not use a third-party pptp client. This is all baked into Gnome’s Network Manager

sudo dnf search pptp

–>

sudo dnf install pptp NetworkManager-pptp-gnome

will nicely integrate VPN functionality into Gnome.

Delete those other repos!

You’d best avoid using PPTP as the protocol is widely insecure due to multiple vulnerabilities.
The recommended solutions are WireGuard, OpenVPN and IPsec implementations.

Thanks a lot! I deleted those repos and my update problem solved, after that I install NetworkManagaer-pptp-gnome, but I still couldn,t connect, I also tried all of the packages with pptp search brought to me, it still didn’t connect!
Do you know what should I do next? Thanks.

Thanks for your warning, I am aware of that but I just can use pptp to connect to my office network, but surely I will talk about it to my manager, to make it right.
Thanks a lot.

Start collecting logs:

journalctl -f

And try to activate the connection.

I serach it and there was a reccomendation:
modprobe nf_conntrack_pptp
I execute it but nothing happend.
Another one was:
sudo nano /etc/modules-load.d/pptp.conf
#Load nf_conntrack_pptp module at boot
nf_conntrack_pptp
I have tried it and nothing happend again!
