      The default is still DNF4, but DNF5 is available as a preview. It is somewhat faster, but the main advantage is that, because it has been rewritten in C++ rather than python, it can be used to fix up a system where the python stack has been damaged (e.g. power outage while updating to a newer major version of the python stack).

      So far our testing shows it to work pretty well already on x86_64, but not on aarch64.
