I would think that audacity and audacity*-2.4 *are different programs, despite the
similarity of their names. However if I rename audacity-2.4 as fred ($ mv audacity-2.4
fred) things work properly.
Let me ask a simple question using my fully updated F30 system as and exmple.
If I type,
[egreshko@meimei ~]$ dnf info audacity

Error: No matching Packages to list
Can you imagine why that would be?
Is the -3 part of the program's name? Or part of the version?
