+ There may be some dangling symlinks in the filesystem after an upgrade. You can clean the dangling links by installing the symlinks utility and deleteing the old links.

+ 

+ [source,bash]

+ ----

+ sudo dnf install symlinks

+ ----

+ 

+ Once the utility is installed you can audit for broken symlinks like shown below. `-r` means recursive.

+ 

+ [source,bash]

+ ----

+ sudo symlinks -r /usr | grep dangling

+ ----

+ 

+ After you verify the list of broken symlinks you can delete them like shown below. `-d` means delete.

+ [source,bash]
