Description of problem:
Fedora/RISC-V (riscv64) kernel does not have /proc/self/loginuid thus misc.getloginuid() returns None and then the conversion to int fails. This happens while running appliance-creator to create nightly disk images.
RPMDB altered outside of DNF.

We moved to DNF 3.0.2 and this started to happen. This particular code was added ~5 months ago and landed in DNF 3.

Dear DNF developers,
I am the maintainer of DNF package on the ArchLinux User Repository (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dnf/).
Since ArchLinux kernel is compiled without audit support, DNF 3 does not work on Arch because of this issue.
This prevents me to push DNF 3 to the AUR until this bug gets fixed.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.
I create a patch that catch also TypeError: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/1428. Please any feedback is welcome.
It looks like that the issue is already fixed in dnf-3.3.0+ by https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/commit/70779df36929b5ccd621941a78c162ae3b8ea7c2
