I can see the same error on f26 with yum-deprecated. It is not a problem with dnf-2.5. Are repositories fixed also for f26? Or I just need to wait a little bit longer :-) then on f25 and f24

All the repos were fixed the same day the issue occurred. 

You may need to 'dnf clean all' or the like to make sure you don't have the bad repodata cached. Also, if you are not using the (default) metalink for Fedora/epel repos but have manually switched to a baseurl, you will need for that specific mirror to sync up.
