Do we still get support if packages gets installed via dnf -nobest?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Currently our IT department uses the versionlock mechanism to freeze to a certain state of packages.
  • dnf versionlock
  • If we need to add a package in the future in combination with the versionlock file we need to add --nobest option to dnf to get the extra package installed.
  • Is this supported by Red Hat?


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8
  • dnf
  • rpm
