2017-06-25 09:45:15 -0500 asked a question Installing mail server on Fedora 25 -- postfix error

Installing postfix on my Fedora server, I have gone through basic config and also installed dovecot, but I'm getting this error when I start the postfix service:

Job for postfix.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status postfix.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

systemctl status postfix.service yields:

systemctl start postfix Job for
postfix.service failed because the
control process exited with error
code. See "systemctl status
postfix.service" and "journalctl -xe"
for details. [root@li1531-138 ~]#

Any ideas what status code 75 means and how to fix this?

Ah, cool. I must have overlooked that bit. My bad.

2017-06-22 17:56:01 -0500 answered a question dnf upgrade fails with curl error

Alas, I, in fact, figured out this question:

The answer was that I was out of disk space

myself before the other answerer, though interestingly not from the error message posted, but rather because of another I received. So unfortunately I could not in good grace accept the user's answer, since it has neither helped me with the problem, nor the unrelated issue of my understanding of physics (though I would note that hard-drive space is not always quite so physics based as this person might be assuming). I would, of course, have updated previously, but I had a security conference to attend very soon after figuring the problem out myself, and did not have internet access for the duration.

2017-06-22 10:33:06 -0500 asked a question dnf upgrade fails with curl error

I had the

system-python: /builddir/build/BUILD/hawkey-0.6.4/src/python/exception-py.c:101: ret2e: Assertion `0' failed.

issue and ran dnf upgrade --refresh, which did not resolve the issue. I then ran dnf clean all which did remove this particular error. However, now when I run dnf upgrade --refresh I see this error:

Running just dnf update results in this output:
