1.4 DNF Groups

A set of packages can be organized and managed as a group. Groups can be nested so that a parent group contains a set of sub-groups that can be installed. Examples include the groups for setting up a virtualization host, a graphical desktop, a collection of fonts, or core system administration tools. The following table shows the dnf commands that you can use to manage these groups.
