Description of problem:
Used 32-bit Fedora 29 network install to install basic system to USB memory stick.
Logon and su -
Get above error message.
Could you provide more details on what has happened?
Logs and additional debug info would be nice.
It's not clear whether it's a problem with dnf or infrastructure (unavailable mirror etc.)
I gave up trying to use the minimal install system. Most likely a user error.
It has been replaced by the basic desktop install.
