Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Accept SSH host key with hash '35:f3:f4:a2:11:b5:01:0e:12:d6:7e:57:4b:b0:45:98:21:80:a7:41' for host 'yafu-70-118:22' (y/n)?: y
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: libssh transport error: failed to write known_host file '/root/.config/libvirt/known_hosts': Cannot create /root/.config/libvirt directory.
2.
3.
