Sometime ago I wrote to this list about network connection problems. I reinstalled my fedora server and all was fine. Well I reinstall a windows system and had to fix grub2. So I booted F38 server and this is the error I got.

Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'fedora':
   - Curl error (6): Couldn't resolve host name for [Could not resolve host:] Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'fedora': Cannot prepare internal mirrorlist: Curl error (6): Couldn't resolve host name for [Could not resolve host:]

     I did nothing to the system and all I tried to run was 'dnf distro-sync' for updates. Is this grub2 related? Since it had to be reinstalled from scratch? The system has always been there I just cleared and reinstalled a Windows on another partition and thusly had to reinstall a new grub2 bootloader. It boots fine.

grub is merely to get the OS loaded, it does nothing after.
You have some sort of DNS issue, either with the Fedora install or with your network.  Can you resolve any other sites?

Also, you say "no network access".  Is that correct?  Can you ping your router?  All you show is a DNS resolve failure, that doesn't imply no network.  Are you on wifi or ethernet?  Does it show as connected?

Wifi is what I am using. In the cli there is network errors reported if I try to ping anything. So I booted into the gui and there was no access. So I found my router on the wifi list of network and had to enter my router's network password. It connect and all was fine. I could ping anything and use the browser. Could there be a place where I can enter the wifi router password permanently and hopefully this would work.

Look in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.  The connection config should have the password, so it should work now, assuming it's set to auto-connect.

There were a coule of different files called *.nmconnection and one did have auto set. But I didn't see a password anywhere in the files. The did refer to the device name of the wifi connection. Anyway all seems well, for now anyway. :)
