You can use RPM to do so. Delete the package and install it.

rpm -qa | grep dnf


rpm -e thatpackage.rpm

then finally to install it again

rpm -i thatpackage.rpm

That should completely reinstall the package, but I am not sure it will solve the problem of the missing directory. Please tell me how it goes.
