    Every parameter I run with dnf command gives me the following error message:
    Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo ‘updates’

    I have a brand new Fedora 27 installed, but cannot move on for this error.

    Hello Pradeep Kumar.

    If only I had access to your knowledge, what a joy my Fedora 30 installation would have been. I am relatively new to the intricacies to Linux. I came to Fedora 30 from Ubuntu, most recently 19.04. Both distros have much to offer.

    I do not know why, but Fedora seems more difficult to me. Perhaps it’s just getting the hang of its nuances.

    I seek your counsel on one niggly problem I am currently having: trying to get Synaptic Package Manager to run on Fedora 30. From the Terminal, I enter sudo -s and provide the password when prompted. This is a carryover from Ubuntu.

    Next, dnf install synaptic runs perfectly well and is available in the applications after installation is complete.

    Now the problem: Synaptic starts just fine. But then, it prompts for ROOT’s password?!?!

    I’ve tried with my sudo -s password. No joy.

    Please, could you provide some guidance to help me overcome this problem? I should be most grateful.

    Thank you very much for your consideration.
