Problem of upgrading from Fedora31 to 32

I have 2 notebooks, they are the same:
The first notebook, I used:

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=32
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
It was OK.

But the second one, I also did the same. But the upgrading failed:

Since Python 2 is now EOL, the Fedora community has been dropping support for it. That’s why python-lxml does not have a python2 package anymore:

https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python-lxml/c/d39bc4a9d1186b9041887f2ca69b34b5a4c76be9?branch=master

The simplest thing to do is to remove these packages, and upgrade. If you still need python2, it’s best to use the python27 package to set up a virtual environment for yourself now.

Sorry Sir,
I do not use Python.
How could I do in order to run

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=32

smoothly ?

Remove the two packages that are causing trouble:

sudo dnf remove python2-lxml python2-beautifulsoup4

then reattempt the upgrade. It should proceed without issues.
