Hi, I'm running Fedora on desktop and I ran the upgrade from 28 to 29 using DNF following these instructions. The upgrade stuck at something like: 10k/11k cleanup -something-

It was at that stage for hours so I restarted the computer and it booted into 29. Problem now is that if I enter: sudo dnf update this is the outcome: image

When I first entered that command after the upgrade I think it was looking updates for Fedora 28 or at least that is what it said in the terminal.

Second problem now is that I cannot enter settings or Fedora apps. When I try to enter settings in the GUI it just shows the loading icon as cursor and after that nothing happens.

I apologize my zero to none knowledge of Linux. Any ideas how to fix this?

The dnf database is corrupted. You could try sudo mv /var/lib/dnf/history /var/tmp/ and rerun dnf. From here: Bug 1596540
