I have installed some software and utility ( putty, filezilla, packet tracer, lolcat). They are working very fine but after some days first packet tracer and lolcat removed suddenly, and today when i want to working with putty and filezilla i see they are removed too. But it’s a question to me why the software itself is removed?
I using fedora 29 and sorry for my bad english.
How did you install those applications, did you used “dnf install putty” or how did you install them?
I used dnf install for putty, filezilla and gem install for lolcat and i installed packet tracer by rpm package
if you installed using dnf tools should be in the drive unless you having a hdd issue.
What this command says?
sudo dnf history | head
Maybe they are still installed, but icons are gone for some reason?
What, for instance, this command says?
sudo dnf history | head:

(This output can’t help me or other because i wrote a script that every two days, history will be reset).
I used whereis command but it show nothing and I’m sure they are removed suddenly and completely.
So, there is not
/usr/bin/filezilla on your system? Weird.
(This is to exclude that it is not a PATH problem).
In addition, just to have more informations, what about, for instance, to look at the list of installed RPMs?
rpm -q filezilla
Isn’t filezilla installed?
I mean, there is something other than DNF that removes the installed packages. But I can’t imagine what.
Have you looked in the logs? https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/viewing-logs/
Try to search for PackageKit
Yes when filezilla and other software removed, whereis command show nothing.
i installed filezilla again and
rpm -q filezilla show it is installed. Thanks for the link you send i will read it and search about packageKit.
Sorry if I make obvious questions When filezilla is installed, the whereis command shows the executable path, right?
Find the binary, source code and man page for specified program or command.
