Install the yum-utils package if you don't already have it:dnf install yum-utilsThen you can run:package-cleanup --leaves List leaf nodes in the local RPM database. Leaf nodes are RPMs that are not relied upon by any other RPM.package-cleanup --orphan List installed packages which are not available from currently configured repositories.Its not automatically safe to erase the packages you find.
