As an example,

# dnf install java
Last metadata expiration check performed 2:55:30 ago on Fri May 29 04:43:12 2015.
Error: package java-1.8.0-openjdk-1: requires java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless = 1:, but none of the providers can be installed

This is on a fresh install, too. Are there known issues with DNF and the underlying hawkey in dependency resolution and packages with multiple architectures? I'm gonna wait to update my work systems as a result. Just curious how reproducible similar problems are for other F22 users.

did you add some additional repo or did you use some beta version ?

try this first dnf distro-sync --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=fedora --enablerepo=updates

dnf info java-1.8.0-openjdk.i686 give me this

Version : Release : 38.b14.fc22

Right you are. Wasn't related to outside repos, but apparently in my haste and autocompleted arguments to dd, I started out with the beta. Dunno how I missed all the warnings in anaconda, but that is what's on my thumb drive. Thank you for pointing it out!
