Description of problem:

The man page for yum2dnf lists a set of equivalences for old Yum tools and the new DNF command.  The entry for debuginfo-install lists the equivalence as shown here:

         ┌──────────────────────┬─────────────────────┬─────────────────────┐
         │Original Yum tool     │ New DNF command     │ Package             │
         ├──────────────────────┼─────────────────────┼─────────────────────┤
         │debuginfo-install     │ dnf          debug‐ │ dnf-plugins-core    │
         │                      │ info-install        │                     │
         ├──────────────────────┼─────────────────────┼─────────────────────┤

You can probably see the problem: this has been hyphenated.  The correct DNF version is 'dnf debuginfo-install' (no hyphen between 'debug' and 'info') but the man page makes it look like the command is 'dnf debug-info-install'.  I tried running 'dnf debug-info-install' and found the error messages completely unhelpful and inscrutable, and this was mysterious to track down.

Please either fix the man page, or make 'dnf debug-info-install' an alias of 'dnf debuginfo-install'.


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

Unfortunately man renders it this way. It happens only when the terminal width is too narrow otherwise it's fine.
