proposed patch to fix the issue
The problem is simply reproducible:
dnf install @kde-desktop-environment
The installation fails, specifying that the group does not exist. The problem is that when performing the install operation, dnf searches through comps and looks for group with the specified name. However, kde-desktop-environment is not a group, it's an environment. Therefore the installation fails.
I attach a very rough patch that fixes the issue, hope that helps.
Thanks for help. I made pull request that refactors these commands so the code of "@..." and "group ... ..." uses the same code and works also for "dnf erase @...".
