Hello, Gnight! How many repositorys are installed on your system? Which command you are running to install the Steam?

I have used the negativo17 repository before, but I could not get it to work on my Fedora 23 system and could not determine why that was happening. I ended up going with the RPMFusion repositories independently of the negativo17 repository (which requires them anyway, as the repository maintainer notes here: ).

Just execute:

sudo dnf install$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm'

And then a simple:

sudo dnf install steam

You may refer to my blog for these same instructions, some more information, and additional considerations for installing the NVidia proprietary graphics drivers as well:

Steam is in the rpmfusion-nonfree repository, install both free and nonfree and:

dnf install steam

Try running

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=

sudo dnf -y install steam

Note that that repository requires the addition of RPMFusion repositories to your system.
