The trick was to first run "dnf install redhat-rpm-config"

I installed a lot of packages manually, but I do not think that was

lots of the
anaconda packages seemed to clear out.
Everything installed !!
I am too scared to reboot. But probably will anyways.
I am curious now whether my system will say I am on Fedora 33, if
it reboots successfully ??

If you want a simple way to see exactly what kernel you're running,
If you want to know the familiar name of the OS you are running, type:
If you REALLY want to get fancy, edit your /etc/bashrc file using vim
or equivalent editor. Look for the following three lines about 52 lines
into the file:
# Turn on checkwinsize shopt -s checkwinsize [ "$PS1" = "\\s-
\\v\\\$ " ] && PS1="[\u@\h \W]\\$ "
Replace the third line with this:
[ "$PS1" = "\\s-\\v\\\$ " ] && PS1="\n\\033[1;31m`cat
release`\n\\033[1;34m`date +%A` - `date +%B` `date +%d`, `date
+%Y` \\033[0;32m\t `date +%Z`\n\033[0;36m[\u@\h:\l]
(Make sure you use back ticks rather than single quotes.) This will
give you a complex colorful multi-line xterm prompt that will dress up
your terminal sessions.
If you like running Rawhide simply because it has a cool name, you
should probably have heeded your mother's warning not to run with
scissors. I've been using Fedora since its initial release, and Red Hat
Linux before that. I remember the wreckage in the early days when I
(ignorantly) tried installing every (!) package in what was then
Rawhide. Talk about your major train wreck. I eventually learned to
install development versions of Fedora (starting with the Beta release)
only in a VM so any serious oops wouldn't destroy my day-to-day working
files in /home.
It's up to you, of course. Just a bit of no-cost advise from a long-
time user to a new guy.
