RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Comment 9 Todd Zullinger 2019-12-29 01:22:52 UTC
It's possible this bug was caused by the lack of /usr/bin/python3 on the test system.  That might be puzzling to some users at first, as dnf clearly works and needs python.  But it uses /usr/libexec/platform-python.  I recently ran into this issue in an updated CentOS 8 container with dnf-4.2.7-6.el8.noarch.

The completion script should use that as well, but it doesn't because the code to use that alternate python had the path as /usr/libexec/system-python.  That was added back in 2017 and the path was changed before it reached EL8.

A PR to fix that issue has been merged: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/1562 (https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/commit/46c5023).
