I just finished doing a "dnf upgrade" as a prerequisite step to upgrading from f-38 to f-39.
There were no hints of any problems.  The kernel and the graphics driver were replaced during this "dnf upgrade".
The akmods did finish before I rebooted.
The shutdown took 5 minutes because it ran akmods (a second time?!).
During the boot-up, there was a message that it was failing back to nouveau.
The display is not working properly; only one monitor is being used and everything is oversized in the display.
I am not comfortable proceeding with the f-38 to f-39 upgrade with the work station in this condition.

Important: I have only one old kernel.  I have no rescue kernel.

How do I get this workstation working properly?

I looked at the dnf logs.  Something caught my attention.  I put the file on the google drive as "dnflog.txt".  It does not show properly in google's preview, but you should be able to download it and view it with vim.  There are "non-printing" characters; I don't know how to fix or remove those.  Here is the link:

This morning's run has the curl error.
This morning's run has nothing corresponding to last week's lines 540-569.
Beyond that, I'm stumped.

I hope this helps someone to help me.
