DNF is a software package manager that installs, updates, and removes packages on RPM-based Linux distributions. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages. DNF makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm.

DNF is the next upcoming major version of Yum. It roughly maintains CLI compatibility with Yum and defines strict API for extensions and plugins. Plugins can modify or extend features of DNF or provide additional CLI commands on top of those mentioned below. If you know the name of such a command (including commands mentioned bellow), you may find/install the package which provides it using the appropriate virtual provide in the form of dnf-command(<alias>) where <alias> is the name of the command; e.g. dnf-command(repoquery) for a repoquery command (the same applies to specifying dependencies of packages that require a particular command).

Available commands are:

   autoremove
   check-update
   clean
   distro-sync
   downgrade
   group
   help
   history
   info
   install
   list
   makecache
   mark
   provides
   reinstall
   remove
   repolist
   repository-packages
   search
   updateinfo
   upgrade
