I know how to install that codec, but I din't ask how to install. I asked how to reset the install that is stuck? Answer seems to be restart the computer. After restart Software program fall at once as I tried to start it. Not good at all.

finally realize that all is about ipv6, disable ipv6 in terminal doing always when you turn on your pc (with root privileges)

root# echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6

in terminal you could force ipv4 with -4 option, this way

sudo dnf install vim-enhanced -4

One option is disable ipv6 always when you turn on your pc. By terminal with root privileges run

root# echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6
