_Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):_I changed my repo to rolling and ran sudo dnf --refresh distro-sync, and then rebooted. No accounts are accessible. This is the second time. The first time, I chrooted into the install and changed the root password, and it said my user account (fishe) did not exist, even when it showed up in the users command. Additionally, KDE kept giving errors that very many things were inaccessible. What can I do?
Relevant informations (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):
At the end of the dnf distro-sync did you answer some questions? Questions about some files like /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group, and /etc/gshadow. Those are the files that contain your users, groups, and passwords.
If you can chroot into or simply boot in to console login you can easily re-create users and passwords. Also you might look in /etc and see if you have files like /etc/shadow.rpm.old. If so you could just copy that back to /etc/shadow. You want to check all four of those files.
Yes, but whether you answer yes or no depends on the file. For /etc/passwd , /etc/shadow , /etc/group , and /etc/gshadow you generally would want to keep the original files. For .repo files or files about grub2 you generally want to accept the new files.
I just wrote this post because we have seen several users having this issue.
And the questions at the end are not always the same but the ones about those 4 files are almost always a part of this system upgrade.
After following the post and upgrading OM, DNF and the KDE app menu is broken,
Running DNF gives me this error:

Opening the KDE app menu gives me this error:
