Use separators, please. http://dnf.readthedocs.org/en/latest/command_ref.html#specifying-packages

Could you please give me an example? I definitely saw this page before, but still fail to find the right combination.

Actually this seems to work:

$ LANG=en_US sudo dnf remove 'kernel*-4.3.0-0.rc2.git1.1.fc24'
