Yes, that is correct. The action is completed okay, but later after a
screen timeout and reactivation the pop-up appears.
Bug 1715617 - DNF fails with what appears to be a fails download:

I should note that I haven't had any problems like this with running
updates and installs on other PCs here running F30 on the same network
with no adjustments to the repo parameters. Are you saying this might be
a problem with a local parameter in the Rawhide (F31) drop that has to
do with mirrors?
No, but the F30 systems might be getting a different mirror from
mirrormanager. There are fewer Rawhide mirrors than stable release
I would like to try this, but I need some help with how to make the
change. I've never done this before. I need to know how I can identify
the url for a repo and where to make the change.
Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo (take a backup first just in case).
In the [fedora] section, comment out the line that starts 'metalink'
and uncomment the line that starts 'baseurl', and change the
'download.fedoraproject.org' in that line to 'dl.fedoraproject.org'.
That should work for a quick test.
