F28 any install fails using SOFTWARE icon

When ever I try and install software using the SOFTWARE icon in Fedora 28, it is always returning with the error.."Failed as ** is already installed." It will be a library of some sort......... This is a FRESH install that deleted everything on the partition that the previous Fedora was on so it is not already installed... I had this problem previously in F22 and I have followed the advice given there to do dnf updates etc....but this has not changed the situation. I can install some software via Terminal so it is the SOFTWARE package that seems to be the issue.. I have enabled RPM's, I have done updates, I have enable 3rd party repos etc etc but still it failed

Any help is gratefully accepted as I am having no end of issues..... Thanks in advance
