Description Jiří Vymazal 2017-06-21 03:17:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot use dnf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  Installed: dnf-0:1.1.10-6.fc25.noarch at 2017-03-28 08:29
  Built    : Fedora Project at 2017-03-15 08:52

  Installed: rpm-0: at 2017-03-28 08:29
  Built    : Fedora Project at 2017-02-24 12:48

How reproducible:
run any dnf command (tried install, update, upgrade)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ sudo dnf upgrade

Actual results:
system-python: /builddir/build/BUILD/hawkey-0.6.4/src/sack.c:354: load_ext: Assertion `ret == 0' failed.
zsh: abort      sudo dnf upgrade

Expected results:
dnf upgrade runs

Additional info:
before this started happening dnf timed out on probably some back-end connection
issue and encountered Transaction check error concerning dnf-installed and gem-installed rake packages.

Also tried running "sudo dnf clean all" but it did not help.
Comment 2 Igor Gnatenko 2017-06-21 03:45:35 EDT
rm -rf /var/cache/dnf/*

DNF 1.x is unsupported and will get only security fixes, so closing.
Comment 3 Jiří Vymazal 2017-06-21 04:28:26 EDT
Ok, just how am I supposed to "correctly" upgrade dnf to supported version (and by the way why is this not handled (semi-)automatically during dnf upgrade)? The work-around you listed above worked only for one dnf command after it and now no longer works at all. Tried also reboot and coupling your work-around with dnf clean all but nothing helps.

Comment 6 Jacek Pawlyta 2017-06-21 07:09:20 EDT
In ma case updates-testing repo caused the error.

Disabling it helps:

dnf --disabelrepo=updates-tetsing update

there is no any other version of dnf than 1.x in any official fedora 25 repos.
What should we use then?
Comment 7 Jacek Pawlyta 2017-06-21 07:14:14 EDT
I think the bug should be be reopened with hight priority beacuse it blocks updating the system.
