Comment 1 Jon Richter 2020-10-19 20:46:13 UTC
I can confirm and reproduce this on F33 here.

It appears this package is built against this Fedora 32 package


which provides the asked

instead of


for Fedora 33.

This issue also propagates to Fedora 34 / rawhide, where the same error appears, interestingly while trying to install a fc33 labeled package.


Somehow the package building pipeline for QGIS throughout the releases appears to be garbled altogether.
