But the bug is a bug. It will get fixed of course.

Oh, I didn't see that you're on aarch64. Unfortunately copr does not provide a repo for aarch64. You can simply install the package manually, e.g. https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/zbyszek/dnf-plugin-fedup/fedora-22-x86_64/dnf-plugin-fedup-0-2.20150716git6d6a316.fc24/dnf-plugin-fedup-0-2.20150716git6d6a316.fc22.noarch.rpm .
# dnf fedup download --releasever=23
Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'updates' from 'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=updates-released-f23&arch=aarch64': Cannot prepare internal mirrorlist: file "repomd.xml" was not found in metalink
Is this expected? Any other options to try?
It might be some mirroring problem rather than an issue with fedup itself. I saw similar messages from dnf in normal usage yesterday. Please try again...
I again saw the same message.
Indeed. https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=updates-released-f23&arch=aarch64 has a comment inside
# repo = updates-released-f23 arch = aarch64 error: invalid repo or arch
I'll ask on the mailing list what the expected status of aarach64 is.
The URL now works. It was fixed yesterday.
I've confirmed that as well.
