Description of problem:
The text-www-browser is a virtual provide used by text based browsers. I want to remove all such text browsers so I issued command

$ sudo dnf remove text-www-browser
Dependencies resolved.

Is this ok [y/N]: n

So, dnf is not removing all packages that provides text-www-browser whereas yum removes it happily.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

yum and dnf should behave same here right?

Thanks for the report, we plan to fix this and we are thinking about the new command-name because we would like to preserve this dnf behavior too.
