When I try to download updates, I consistently get an error message:

Unable to download updates:
could not do untrusted question as no klass support

Refreshing the updates doesn't change anything.

When I run "sudo dnf update", I see:

RPM Fusion for Fedora 30 - Free - Updates                                                                                                                                                        1.6 MB/s | 1.7 kB     00:00    
Importing GPG key 0xC0AEDA6E:
 Userid     : "RPM Fusion free repository for Fedora (30) <rpmfusion-buildsys@lists.rpmfusion.org>"
 Fingerprint: 80C3 B2C6 E727 F3E0 92B4 73E0 3DF2 CE43 C0AE DA6E
 From       : /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-30
Is this ok [y/N]: 

I'm guessing that's the cause of the error. However, if that's the case, Gnome Software needs to handle it somehow.

Still a problem in Fedora 31.

Comment 2 Dima Ryazanov 2020-02-05 01:34:48 UTC
Seeing this again. Also found a forum thread about it: https://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?322093-Unable-to-download-updates-could-not-do-untrusted-question-as-no-klass-support

Comment 3 Slavic 2020-02-08 12:11:26 UTC
I have filed a similar report for Fedora 31. Should we updated the version here and mark mine as duplicate?

Comment 4 Ben Cotton 2020-04-30 20:27:59 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 30 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 30 on 2020-05-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '30'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 30 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 5 Ben Cotton 2020-05-26 14:37:25 UTC
Fedora 30 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-05-26. Fedora 30 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Still reproducible on Fedora 32.

logs show the following:

Upstream issue:

Comment 8 Sam Wachira 2020-11-09 20:39:11 UTC
Still a problem on Fedora 32. Trying to download Fedora 33 through gnome-software app fails with the same error.

Comment 9 Sam Wachira 2020-11-09 20:45:08 UTC
Check each non-Fedora .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d which has 'gpgcheck=0' and set it 'enabled=0'.
Worked for me but would be nice to have a permanent solution.
