dnf list gives the output like this:

$ dnf list --installed
Installed Packages
CharLS.x86_64                               1.0-16.fc28                 @fedora 
GConf2.x86_64                               3.2.6-20.fc28               @fedora 
GeoIP.x86_64                                1.6.12-3.fc28               @fedora 
GeoIP-GeoLite-data.noarch                   2018.04-1.fc28              @fedora 

While dnf repoquery outputs this:

$ dnf repoquery --installed

How to use --qf flag for dnf repoquery to get the same nicely formatted output as dnf list?

Looking at and you need something like:

dnf repoquery --installed --queryformat '%45{name} %{arch}\t%20{evr} %{reponame}'

which will print

CharLS                                        x86_64    1.0-16.fc28          @System
Coin3                                         x86_64    3.1.3-22.fc28        @System
GConf2                                        x86_64    3.2.6-20.fc28        @System
GeoIP                                         x86_64    1.6.12-3.fc28        @System
GeoIP-GeoLite-data                            noarch    2018.04-1.fc28       @System

Looks like it is impossible to concatenate %{name} and %{arch} in one column.

Yeah, at least there's no obvious way (not everything printf can works here). You can work around it by moving %{name}.%{arch} to last "column" or aligning name to the right (with - before 45), but the question is why do you need exact clone of dnf list output? dnf list has some options and can be further limited with package names e.g. dnf list installed geoip*.

Just want to check that getting the exact output is impossible with common formatting tools.Thanks for confirming.
