    Command-line dnf upgrade (F39->F40) failed yesterday, barfing on a

What procedure did you follow?

    leaving 2.5GB of rpms sitting in
    /var/lib/dnf/system-upgrade.  'dnt clean' does not remove these.

    Is it safe to manually clear out this subdirectory?

If you follow dnf-system-upgrade, then before the `dnf system-upgrade reboot` step, it tells you how to abort and delete the download cache. But I don't remember what it says to do. Sorry about that.

    (FWIW, I tried the now-recommended GUI software app's "upgrade" and it
    ran  the upgrade without error, but all this cruft is still sitting

I believe the recommended procedure is detailed at dnf-system-upgrade, < <>>.

What procedure did you follow?

Followed the above prescribed procedure. Final step in download reported 'curl' failure to download the GPG key. Onscreen cleanup instructions apparently did nothing, since all the packages were still sitting there. Repeated downloads also failed, reporting everything had already been downloaded, but barfing again on the GPG key download.

Attempting the upgrade reboot resulted in message the system "not ready for upgrade."
