See bug #1680221

Perhaps:

Recommends: (dnf-utils unless yum-utils)

Comment 1 Miroslav Suchý 2019-02-26 09:12:11 UTC
I am not really sure I want to have this change there.

People really should migrate to dnf-utils. If I put there the recommends you suggested, then they will stay on yum-utils for ages.

With the current behaviour I end up with similar end result as in Bug #1680250 - Unable to install last update and I have to *know* how to and *manually* intervent to upgrade my otherwise normally installed Fedora 29.

I believe in this case ages means Fedora 31 (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Retire_YUM_3 ).

Pavol,

I successfully updated doing this at the command line,

$ sudo dnf remove yum-utils
$ sudo dnf update

I understand that it is possible to workaround this by manual intervention. What I'm saying is that I would expect package metadata to be configured in a way that no manual intervention is needed.

Ah, right, a thousand pardons.  Of course you're right.

Comment 7 Miroslav Suchý 2019-10-15 10:43:34 UTC
Yum-utils does not exists on F31. I consider this resolved.
