Ddclient install fail

Trying to install ddclient…running up with an error:
Problem: conflicting requests

  • nothing provides perl(Digest::SHA1) needed by ddclient-3.9.1-1.el8.noarch
    (try to add ‘–skip-broken’ to skip uninstallable packages or ‘–nobest’ to use not only best candidate packages).
    After searching online for help, I found some info about missing the PowerTools repro. I tried running:

dnf config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools

Error: No matching repo to modify: PowerTools.

Can someone help please?


Please try:

dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools

Thanks Tom.

For those who use EasyDNS for DNS hosting, I want to share my configuration experience with you…

vim /etc/ddclient.conf

daemon=3600 # check every 3600 seconds
syslog=yes # log update msgs to syslog
#mail=root # mail all msgs to root
mail-failure=root # mail failed update msgs to root
pid=/var/run/ddclient/ddclient.pid # record PID in file.
ssl=yes # use ssl-support. Works with

EasyDNS (easydns.com)

password=dynamic authenication token

Save ddclient.conf

vim /etc/sysconfig/ddclient

DDCLIENT_OPTIONS="-daemon 3600"

chown -R ddclient:ddclient /var/run/ddclient

chown -R ddclient:ddclient /var/cache/ddclient

systemctl --now enable ddclient

All set to go… :sunglasses:
