This could be triggered by several circumstances. Did you get any warning or error messages during sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=23? I also have read that if you change something during download this could happen. You also could try to just start over again, read the output of the commands carefully and come back to here

Not sure what the actual problem was, but there was an unsigned install of google-chrome-stable that produced warnings. I uninstalled chrome and the upgrade worked. Thank you!
