Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1463505
DNF errors with "Assertion `ret == 0' failed."
Last modified: 2017-06-21 07:14:55 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-0:220.127.116.11-1.fc25.x86_64 at 2017-03-28 08:29
Built : Fedora Project at 2017-02-24 12:48
run any dnf command (tried install, update, upgrade)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ sudo dnf upgrade
system-python: /builddir/build/BUILD/hawkey-0.6.4/src/sack.c:354: load_ext: Assertion `ret == 0' failed.
zsh: abort sudo dnf upgrade
dnf upgrade runs
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.
rm -rf /var/cache/dnf/*
DNF 1.x is unsupported and will get only security fixes, so closing.
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.

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?
I think the bug should be be reopened with hight priority beacuse it blocks updating the system.
