i tried disabling packagekitd since i only use dnf anymore - with

sudo systemctl disable packagekitd

but after reboot:

sudo service packagekit status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status  packagekit.service
โ— packagekit.service - PackageKit Daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/packagekit.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running)

i also tried removing, but it will remove around 40 packages (probably the ones installed w/ gnome-software)

In my case I masked the service:

$ sudo systemctl mask packagekit.service

I think the thread you're referring to is here:

It suggested the following. I hope it works.

[xxxxx@xxxxx ~]$ sudo systemctl mask packagekit.service
[sudo] password for xxxxx: 
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/packagekit.service โ†’ /dev/null.
[xxxxx@xxxxx ~]$
