The wireshark works fine even with this problem.

This problem has existed for quite a while, and is a result of upgrading through several fedora versions. What fixed it for me was:

  • uninstall all wireshark packages
  • remove the file /var/lib/alternatives/wireshark
  • remove the symbolic link /etc/alternatives/wireshark
  • reinstall the wireshark packages.

I suspect that the file /var/lib/alternatives/wireshark was created many releases ago and its contents were no longer compatible with the current wireshark packages.
