install the update. If it doesn't work, file a bug in and downgrade again using dnf downgrade packagename. You might need to re-download old versions of your package, this link might help.

If you are doing that on a regular basis, you may want to use the keepcache option in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf. Be careful, with this option enabled, dnf will keep all old packages, eating gigabytes on your hard disk.
