even although I have the copr repository active I am not able to
# dnf install octave

I suspect this is an issue with having the octave:4.4 module enabled as
well. They probably won't play well together.
BTW I think that for Fedora 30+ we have to set octave to use python 3. This is
required in the octave-symbolic package since sympy is only available for
In this case I think that we have to create a file in:
(in our case octave-home == /usr)
with the following code:
setenv PYTHON python3;
I am not sure if there are other uses of python that this call interferes
with, but python2 is going to be unsupported at the end of this year. (Even
although it will be used for years and years....)
I think the octave-symbolic package is already configured to use
python3, but it probably is time to configure octave with PYTHON=python3.
