Hi,

i have this following error just executing the dnf upgrade command:

Error: 
 Problem 1: package kernel-modules-extra-4.20.6-200.fc29.x86_64 requires kernel-uname-r = 4.20.6-200.fc29.x86_64, but none of the providers can be installed
  - conflicting requests
 Problem 2: package kernel-4.20.6-200.fc29.x86_64 requires kernel-core-uname-r = 4.20.6-200.fc29.x86_64, but none of the providers can be installed
  - conflicting requests
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)

Even with the --skip-broken option same error.

Any suggestion to fix it?

thanks.

Basically somehow dnf doesn't see package kernel-core-4.20.6-200.fc29.x86_6 and because of it doesn't want to install other kernel packages (kernel- and kernel-modules-extra).

You can try sudo dnf clean all -- to clear all dnf cached information,

then sudo dnf check-update to get the list of packages to update (note kernel-core-4.20.6, it should be among the updates),

and then sudo dnf upgrade again to try to install them.

It's one of the simplest thing to try.

Also take notice during dnf upgrade, it could be trying to download kernel-core-4.20.6, but was not successful for some reason, that's the other way you can get into your situation.

If that's the case, then check-update will list kernel-core-4.20.6 among updates, and trouble is just with downloading it.

Please report if that's the case.

I had some packages not installed properly that were marking as conflicting.

i check with dnf repoquery --duplicates and then manually looking which one were not installed properly and removable without any dependency.

After that dnf upgrade was successful instaling also kernel 5.
