Disable the steam repo and see if that helps to get the system updated. You can deal with the steam packages later.

When you see the Fedora logo press the ESC key. You will see a lot of text. What does the last line of text say? It may have a lot to do with the reason for the "stop".

2018-02-11 05:12:17 -0500 answered a question Who should I send my hard drive to?

drdy error is a sign of a bad or failing hard disk. There could also be a problem with the SATA cable or the disk controller itself.

Clean the computer of all dust and re-seat cables and memory. See if some of the issues go away. If possible I would replace the disk and re-install the OS, but I wouldn't send the old disk anywhere, at least not yet.

After the OS is installed you can do some more trouble shooting with regard to the other issues you are experiencing.

Maybe you could disconnect from the Internet unless necessary. If you need the Internet then connect, do your thing and disconnect. Do this for a few days and it will minimize the chance of infection by malware etc.

Just a few thoughts...

Oh, and I would contact PayPal directly if I were you.

What problems are you having? You are extremely vague.

2018-02-10 17:25:14 -0500 commented answer How do I create a repository

So is this solved or are you still having issues? I've created many local repositories. It really is pretty simple.

2018-02-10 03:51:02 -0500 answered a question How do I create a repository

Create a repo folder.

mkdir /testrepo

Copy some rpm files into /testrepo. Install createrepo

dnf install createrepo

Change working folder to /testrepo

cd /testrepo

Create repository metadata

createrepo /testrepo

Change to /etc/yum.repos.d and create a .repo file

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
nano testrepo.repo

In this .repo file add the following text:

[testrepo]
name=Test Repository
baseurl=file:///testrepo/
enabled=1

Run dnf update and then dnf repolist. You should see testrepo included in the repository listing.

Additionally, by installing and using repoview and adding a stanza to httpd.conf my local yum repository is available to other machines on the home network.

2018-02-10 03:43:52 -0500 commented answer How do I create a repository

Google shows many examples on how to create a dnf / yum repository.

2018-01-29 03:14:01 -0500 answered a question Why is dnf so slow?

I add the following three lines to the bottom of my /etc/dnf/dnf.conf

ip_resolve=4
keepcache=true
deltarpm=false

It seems to help quite a bit, although I'm not going to claim that it is the perfect solution for everyone. Also, if bandwidth or data caps are a concern you may not want to disable deltarpm.
