DNF update will download all updates and install them once it has been installed dnf clean all will clean you current database chache, meta data and all cache files and packages downloaded, normally you want to run it when there is an issue or want to get some space on your hard disk. When you run dnf update again it will download all the db information from the repo and check to see if there is anything new to update.
