Package manager not Found in Fedora 30 new installation

Hi Guys,

Newbie here, some problems yet :smiley:

I’ve installed Fedora 30 workstation from a live USB key on a formerly win 10 Hp

All went well, the installation succeeded, and i’m writing this post from my new HPinux. However, i’m facing some problems with the package manager. Neither yum nor DNF are present, i’m receving the “command not found” promt and really don’t understand why, since i see that dnf should be automatically added during new installation

Can you help me? i’m at your disposal for further information if needed

Welcome to the community, @depa00. Please do have a look at the posts in #start-here if you haven’t had a chance yet.

Yes—dnf must be present. To begin with, could you try the following commands and tell us what you get?

cat /etc/os-release

which dnf

rpm -qa \*dnf\*

That’s all? It should contain at least a few of these:

$ rpm -qa \*dnf\*

python3-dnf-4.2.5-1.fc30.noarch
dnf-yum-4.2.5-1.fc30.noarch
dnf-data-4.2.5-1.fc30.noarch

Can you please tell us:

  • where you obtained the installer image
  • how you went about installing from it
  • did the installation proceed normally?
  • what have you done since (any customisations and so on)?

Could you also run fpaste --sysinfo in a terminal and give us the resulting output? Hopefully, fpaste will be installed…

Oh, just noticed: the command is:

rpm -qa \*dnf\*

(the slashes are required)

:thinking:

:thinking:

Isn’t that you have installed Fedora Silverblue?

Silverblue is a variant of Fedora Workstation. It looks, feels and behaves like a regular desktop operating system, and the experience is similar to what you find with a standard Fedora Workstation.
However, unlike other operating systems, Silverblue is immutable.

I’m a bit upset about this…

I’m quite sure i found my iso from here

but maybe not :innocent:

I’ll give it a try by redownloading this iso, i’ll be back soon :wink:

Yes, but was it the “Workstation” ISO or the “Silverblue” one? As @alciregi pointed out, If you’re using Silverblue, things work diffrerently :slight_smile:

I hadn’t realised that Silverblue still says “Workstation” as the product. Is the only way to differentiate using os-release that it has the OSTREE_VERSION line?

That’s the point for me, when installed it says Workstation everywhere, no Silverblue logo or something like that :smile:

I’m preparing a new live USB with the canonical iso

Haha, yeh—but in your case, you should sort of have some idea of what you did install :wink:

Do read the Silverblue documentation that @alciregi linked to. It is the “Workstation”, but it’s different under the hood. That could quite be what you’re looking for, and then there won’t be any need to re-install :slight_smile:

You’re right, i was too enthusiastic :sweat_smile:

I’m looking at the Silverblue download page and i really think that was this one that i previously got.

Ty all, il give a try on the official Fedora 30, then maybe i’ll keep my silverblue :smiley:
