This isn't a man-db bug, since man-db is not responsible for the contents of specific manual pages.  It should probably be reassigned to coreutils.

Thank you, I wasn't sure where to report it.
Changing component.

I consider this not a bug. Sentence "you should instead be using a package manager\n\like yum(1) or apt-get(1)." from help usage and man page is distribution independent. DNF is atm. just Fedora specific.

IMHO it is not worth downstream patch and not upstreamable atm.
Closing NOTABUG, as yum is listed just as an example of package manager - and as afaik ultimate goal is (or at least was) to rename dnf back to yum (at least through symlink).
