Comment 1 Martin Hatina 2018-04-16 11:25:22 UTC
Fixed in dnf-2.7.5-9.fc28

Comment 2 Justin Barry 2018-04-26 17:52:43 UTC
The version of Fedora Server Beta that I downloaded came with dnf-2.7.5-8.fc28 meaning I still encountered the error described above.
I couldn't figure out how to update to a later version of dnf when every dnf command I tried was giving me this error.
I went to the fedora-server irc channel and a user there suggested disabling the fedora modular repositories.
I ran this command: 'rpm -e fedora-repos-modular'.
Which allowed me to run 'dnf update dnf' without getting the error.
Then I reinstalled fedora-repos-modular with 'dnf install fedora-repos-modular'.
And since I now have dnf-2.7.5-12.fc28 I don't encounter the error anymore.
