Downgrade Command

Synopsis

dnf5 downgrade [options] <package-spec>...

Description

The downgrade command in DNF5 is used to downgrade each package specified in package-spec list to the highest installable version of all known lower versions if possible. When the version is explicitly given in the argument and it is lower than the version of the installed package then it downgrades to this one.

Options

--allowerasing
Allow erasing of installed packages to resolve any potential dependency problems.
--skip-broken
Resolve any dependency problems by removing packages that are causing problems from the transaction.
--skip-unavailable
Allow skipping packages that are not possible to downgrade. All remaining packages will be downgraded.

Examples

dnf5 downgrade nano-0:6.0-2.fc36
Downgrade the nano package to the given version.
dnf5 downgrade gcc glibc --allowerasing
Downgrade gcc, glibc packages and allow erasing of installed packages when needed.
