Is there a command that allows one to see a list of which packages were recently updated by running command sudo dnf update -y. I've already tried sudo dnf history but that's not the list I'm after.

The command sudo dnf history, as you may have already noticed, also lists actions by ID, which you can use to show further details, for example on my system:

sudo dnf history show 175


Transaction ID : 175
Begin time     : Wed 13 Mar 2019 02:33:41 PM CET
Begin rpmdb    : 7641:85d6060f6a29a36fefef35cb369c6ebae6f19e1d
End time       : Wed 13 Mar 2019 02:33:49 PM CET (8 seconds)
End rpmdb      : 7641:f60f4eebf4741a7b6426cd007d258a4674727800

As a quick alternative, you can also try with:

rpm -qa --last | less

then press Enter to scroll line by line and q to quit.

I find the keyword last very useful, you can also combine it with range as a parameter to inspect e.g. last five dnf transactions dnf history info last-4..last

PGkt, peace be upon those who follow guidance

Try this sudo dnf list --recent

After @vmercuri comment I suggest the following:

sudo dnf history list  | awk -F'|' '$4 ~ /([ ]+U|Update)/{print}'

This only lists packages recently added into the repositories.
