Description Omair Majid 2019-04-26 21:57:54 UTC
Description of problem:

Generally, tools and man page names are very consistent. You generally only need to enter the name of the command prefixed by man to get the right man page:

For example:
- git clean
- man git clean

But dnf-automatic is funny:

- dnf-automatic
- man dnf.automatic

Note that the command uses hyphen (-) but the man page uses a dot (.). That just seems like a very inconsistent user experience. I dont get any man page if I enter "man dnf automatic".


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-4.0.9.2-5.el8.noarch
dnf-automatic-4.0.9.2-5.el8.noarch
