Keep in mind that you should use either "yum" or "dnf"... try not to mix them up.

Also, when in need of installing a package whose name you don't know, try dnf search [possible name] | grep [something related] (optional). In case of TeX/LaTeX, usually the packages have names that start with "texlive-....."

Execute the following: dnf search blindtext, dnf info texlive-blindtext, dnf install texlive-blindtext. Include the doc file, displayed during search, in the install execution if needed.
