      Hello Silvan,

      Today I see a mega upgrade on my x86-64 system but dnf offers i586 packages (501 packages) to install, is this normal?
      Thank you in advance for your answer.

      Hello,
      this is usually caused by the dnf updates manager which is unable to find an upgrade solution with x86_64 packages and also because I think dnf has some issues with bi-arch support since Fedora abandoned the x86 target.

      If you can post the full output of the command sudo dnf update I think we may find and indication of the root cause of the problem and fix it.

      Another viable solution is disabling the x86 repositories by setting enabled = 0 in the file /etc/yum/repos.d/openmamba-rolling-i586.repo. Currently x86 repository is needed on x86_64 only if you use Wine for x86 or have other special needs and I might decide to disable it by default in future.

      Thanks for your help Silvan, I join the dnf update output.

      I don’t need wine on my system, I will use your solution waiting your fix for dnf.

      Hi,
      the problem was indeed caused by a lockup of the tool which refreshes repository metadata and should be fixed now.
