I recently upgraded to Fedora 27 64-bit, running KDE/Plasma.

Since upgrade Apper (Package Kit) has failed repeatedly. The system has sent in a bug report virtually every time I've run it.

DNFDragora ran for a while, but now it's sending in error reports.

Yesterday I used DNFDragora to update to kernel Dragora reported a problem but I couldn't determine what it was. Today the machine won't open the desktop GUI under I get the blue "f" icon, a couple of monitor checks, then the system loses video. The monitor shows it is not receiving data either under "workstation" or "debug". The system seems to be working fine under

I don't know whether this a kernel problem or an updater problem or a kernel problem caused by an updater problem.

Try opening a terminal and using sudo dnf upgrade -y to update your system directly. If it works, great; if not you'll have one or more error messages that you can report here so that we can have an idea of what's happening.

Last metadata expiration check: 1:52:48 ago on Tue 26 Dec 2017 10:30:43 AM PST. Dependencies resolved. Nothing to do. Complete!

not very helpful ;-)

Sure it is! Your system is up-to-date, dnf is working fine and your kernel issue is unrelated.

I stand corrected. Still a kernel issue and (maybe) an updater issue. I can't imagine all the "oops. package crashed" messages are a good thing.
