fedora: About man dcf and descriptions on options


There is an upgrade command:
Code:
Upgrade Command
   dnf [options] upgrade
          Updates each package to the latest version that is both available and resolvable.
But i could not find any description on [options] in the man page.
Where should I look?

I am not upgrading to a newer Fedora.
i am just wanting to look at descriptions of options
in man dnf page.

When I used CentOS, I can see descriptions of options in man yum page.

Why are detail descriptions missing?
Surely it is somewhere.
The man page does not even tell you where the options description are.

I am just trying out Fedora Cinnamon,and so far it is no as good as Linux Mint Cinnamon.

Quote:
OPTIONS
-4 Resolve to IPv4 addresses only.

-6 Resolve to IPv6 addresses only.

--allowerasing
Allow erasing of installed packages to resolve dependencies. This option could
be used as an alternative to yum swap command where packages to remove are not
explicitly defined.

--assumeno
Automatically answer no for all questions

-b, --best
Try the best available package versions in transactions. Specifically during
dnf upgrade, which by default skips over updates that can not be installed for
dependency reasons, the switch forces DNF to only consider the latest packages.
When running into packages with broken dependencies, DNF will fail giving a
reason why the latest version can not be installed.

-C, --cacheonly
Run entirely from system cache, don't update the cache and use it even in case
it is expired.
Manual page dnf(8) line 88 (press h for help or q to quit)
