Description Gerald Cox 2021-01-19 02:57:30 UTC
Description of problem:

dnf offline-upgrade download creates transaction file when dnf reports
"nothing to do".  

This then allows dnf offline-upgrade reboot to be invoked (if there is no transaction file, this command will correctly report:  Error: system is not ready for upgrade).

Upon reboot, empty transaction runs, then process hangs, preventing reboot.  You have to manually CTRL-ALT-DEL to have the system correctly reboot. 

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

If dnf offline-upgrade download has "nothing to do" then no transaction file should be created.  That will allow dnf offline-upgrade reboot to stop the reboot from happening and avoid the whole issue.
