Error: No matching repo to modify: google-chrome

This is what I am doing, following the official docs:

√ ; sudo dnf up fedora-workstation-repositories
Last metadata expiration check: 2:39:10 ago on Tue 03 Jan 2023 09:44:20 GMT.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!
√ ; sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled google-chrome
Error: No matching repo to modify: google-chrome.
✗ 1 ;

Any idea?

the correct command to install the third-party repository is

sudo dnf install fedora-workstation-repositories

see https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/fedora-workstation-repositories/tree/rawhide

For Chromium, you can just install it without adding additional repositories to your system:

sudo dnf install chromium

1.) sudo dnf update --refresh
2) sudo dnf install google-chrome-stable --enablerepo=google-chrome

If that doesn’t work, please show us
ls -l /etc/yum.repos.d/
sudo cat /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo

AH! This worked:

dnf reinstall fedora-workstation-repositories
dnf config-manager --set-enabled google-chrome
dnf install google-chrome-stable

The trick was to re-install fedora-workstation-repositories.
