Fedora 33 update problem

Hello all. My Friend tried to update Fedora 33 via KDE’s discover (there was fedora platform update and some Firefox packages) but it got interrupted now he doesn’t have dbus or network manager. Any one knows how to resolve this?
Someone from this thread suggested to use live USB and chroot but couldn’t find documentation for F33 to chroot OS and upgrade

You, or your friend need a live media, and then follow instructions to chroot into the installed system and finish the upgrade process

1.) follow Setting up chroot from a live image in Fedora. Regenerate grub2 for Fedora. · GitHub (up to line 20)
2.) sudo dnf distro-sync
3.) exit
4.) reboot

i tried mounting with mount /dev/sda1/ /mnt which gets me root at /mnt/root/etc/fedora-release
then i mounted /dev/sda1 to /mnt/boot
but this one fails me “for dir in /dev /proc /sys /run; do mount --bind $dir /mnt/$dir ; done”

i think i figured out mounting with this guide :
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/22/html/Multiboot_Guide/common_operations_appendix.html

getting this at 2nd step :

[root@localhost-live /]# sudo dnf distro-sync
Fedora 33 openh264 (From Cisco) - x86_64 0.0 B/s | 0 B 00:00
Errors during downloading metadata for repository ‘fedora-cisco-openh264’:

cp --remove-destination /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/root/etc/resolv.conf

solved :smiley:

Thanks all for help ultimately steps didn’t work even after completing distro-sync somehow. Finally took backup of data and fresh installed 34KDE
