For those who’ve worked with any Red Hat-based distribution over the years, you’re probably familiar with rpm and yum. The rpm tool makes it possible for you to install .rpm files from your local storage, whereas yum allows you to install packages from remote repositories.

However, you might be surprised to find out that yum has been deprecated. In its place is dnf (Dandified Yum).

Learn more about the dnf package manager, including how to install applications with dnf, remove applications, clean up software that is no longer used, and more ways to easily manage the software on your Red Hat-based Linux distribution in this TechRepublic Premium how-to article.
