Hi! After many years away from Linux, I'm back! Running Win 10 and Fedora 29 KDE with bootloader. Works fine, but start up and closing down is very time consuming. I leave that. Printed the installation information for graphical installation, and followed it to my best understanding. After installation from DVD I had no error messages. That came after first boot. Trying to install Evolution mail client and got this error :

'Cannot update repo 'updates':cannot prepare internal mirror list: Curl error (6): Couldn't resolve host name for https:// mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink? repo=updates-released-f29&search=f 86+-64 [could not resolve host:mirrors.fedoraproject.org] Last error: Curl error (6):Couldn't resolve host name for https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org metalink? repo=updates-released -f29&arc=x86_64 [could not resolve host: mirrors.fedoraproject.org]'

I have no idea of what this means, but i must have done something wrong somewhere. Can anybody please guide me soo I get rid if the error mewsage?

@geron2 , Fisrt try dnf clean all, second - Check why the fedora repo is not accessible with dnf -v install evolution - and update your question with this information ....

Clean all said 0 files removed. dnf -v install evolution gave'[gronning@localhost ~]$ dnf -v install evolution Loaded plugins: builddep, config-manager, copr, debug, debuginfo-install, download, generate_completion_cache, needs-restarting, playground, repoclosure, repograph, repomanage, reposync DNF version: 4.0.4 cachedir: /var/tmp/dnf-gronning-2lm2zu_i Feil: This command has to be run under the root user. [gronning@localhost ~]$

So far so good. Unsure of next step. I am Admin and thought I am root user as well. Hope for some guidance!
