Hello,

perl 5.26 is available from AppStream which should be enabled by default.

>dnf info perl:5.24

above will show if you installed 5.24, showing [a] for active.

The only thing I can think of blocking perl 5.26 is that 5.24 is already installed.

The minimal package for 5.24 is called `perl`, while the minimal for 5.26 is called `perl-interpreter`/

cheers,
PryMar56

Description      : Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, sed, awk and shell scripting. Perl is good at handling processes and files, and is especially good at handling text. Perl's hallmarks are practicality and efficiency. While it is used to do a lot of different things, Perl's most common applications are system administration utilities and web programming.

This seems to be a bug in the dnf module handling: although according to the docs a "[d]efault" module should be used for package dependency checks, it apparently isn't (at least in this case).

Solution: set the perl:5.26 module "enabled" explicitly:

Code: Select all

dnf module enable -y perl
Log:

Code: Select all

[root@ns33 ~]# dnf module list perl
