The first error message isn’t “useless”. The message is produced by libdnf (hawkey) via PackageKit (origin). Have you disabled or removed the PackageKit service? or delete its cache directory? Have you enabled any third-party package repositories? Does dnf update --refresh produce any error messages? Does pkcon update?

The Dolphin error message is related to KIO. I can’t really help you troubleshoot that. I’m not using KDE myself mostly because I always end up with unsolvable errors from KIO that drive me back to GNOME.

If there is a more efficient way of finding out what's broken, and how to fix it, I'd like to know.

You can often copy error messages into GitHub to identify where they originate.
