Fedora updates DNF vs YUM




Im using Fedora version 23 (latest upgrade and upates). Currently to receive the updates, I use:
su -c 'yum update'

This works fine, but I get:
yum command has been deprecated, redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf update'.
See 'man dnf' and 'man yum2dnf' for more information.
To transfer transaction metadata from yum to DNF, run:
'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate'
I have run 'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate' with no errors.

I assume I should now be able to use:
dnf install update

However when I do, every time, I get:
Last metadata expiration check performed 0:59:08 ago on Fri Dec 18 17:30:42 2015.
No package update available.
Error: Unable to find a match.

Please advise, thanks James

Hi, you are trying to install the package "update". If you simply need to update repositories, run dnf update. Yum by the way is obsolete since Fedora 22.
