The dnf info package_name command is similar to the rpm -q --info package_name command, but provides as additional information the name of the DNF repository the RPM package was installed from (look for the From repo: line in the output). The dnf info command shows only the newest available package if there is a newer version available than the one installed. The dnf repoquery command can show all installed and available packages.
To display information about all available packages, both installed and available from a repository, use a command as follows:
dnf repoquery package_name --info
For example, to display information about the abrt package, type:
~]# dnf repoquery abrt --info
