I see a green check mark now. You must have found it. (Only the user asking the question can mark an answer as the correct one)

Someone filed a bug about the qt problem and a new build (2018.1.1-2) has been released in Fedora's repos (as of today, it's in testing).

I would suggest you remove the "old" 2017 version that you installed from a third-party and instead install FlightGear from Fedora's repo.

As long as it is in testing, sudo dnf install --enablerepo=updates-testing FlightGear

The inhibitor for updating to qt 5.11 was FlightGear 2018.xx, the dependencies of FlightGear try to install qt 5.10 etc. The solution is to use FlightGear 2017.xx and now the system is up-to-date.

after updating to qt 5.11, is FlightGear fine with updating to version 2018.1.1 from the F28 repos?

Look here: here you can see that FlightGear pulls in some qt 5.10.xx. files That is the same as I described. No other Version available in Fedora's repos. 2018.2.2 is only available on Fedora 29 rawhide, there is no more qt 5.10.xx reference. What's About Fedora 29 rawhide, please can you explain me?

I would not suggest installing software from outside Fedora's official software repositories if the software is available within the repos.

Both Flightgear 2018.2.2 and 2018.1.1 have now been built for qt5.11 (see my answer below).

Nothing to do.


That usually means that you have another package installed that is depending on the qt-5.10.x package. You have to wait for that package to be updated, or you remove it and thus removing the dependency on the older qt5 package(s).

FYI: I have something similar going on, in my case qgis needs qt5-qtbase-5.10.1-6.fc28.x86_64 ( See here for details. Maybe your dnf update is telling you something simiar.

Thank you Florian. In my case it is FlightGear newest version. In my case dnfdragora wants to downgrade FlightGear.

FlightGear rocks - I am playing it myself (or I used to play it but don't find the time for it currently). Not sure you need qt5.11 for anything. Also, not sure why an earlier version of FlightGear would not require the same or even an older qt.
