dnf deleted the OS !?

I do not understand how is this even possible. I had Fedora 21 for about 2 years, and recently upgraded to 25. I decided to use dnf instead of my regular yum (I am getting annoyed by those alerts that the yum is not supported. I did a

dnf update;

and it run. It deleted everything including the bash. I thought it was a little strange that do not have a terminal anymore, but I said maybe it will get fixed on restart. I did restart and I only have the BIOS. I may have ran also an

dnf autoremove;

This should have removed the unused packages not everything. I am not hoping to recover anything, I am only asking if why is this even possible. There should be something in dnf to prevent this from happening, no?
