not showing up in the packages app: https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/kernel

I think it needs to be pushed at least to testing in order to show there.

Is "This update has been submitted for testing by jcline" different from pushed to testing? Anyway, I think there is a bug with the package app since it shows an old 4.16.2 kernel, not even 4.16.6.-300

This is what I get from dnf with updates-testing:

Problem: cannot install both kernel-4.16.6-300.fc28.x86_64 and kernel-4.16.6-300.fc28.x86_64 - cannot install the best update candidate for package kernel-4.16.6-300.fc28.x86_64 - cannot install the best update candidate for package kernel-4.16.6-200.fc27.x86_64

That likely means that the mirror you are connecting to does not yet have the packages (still -300, and you can't install the same kernel a second time). You can try..

sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel*

or just wait a couple of hours.

@augenauf, someone noticed that packages issue yesterday I think and brought it up in the #fedora-admin channel (maybe it was you?). My guess is it missed some messages and doesn't do any polling so it didn't get updated. It looks to be updated now that the package actually got pushed. When updates are submitted for testing, they don't actually end up in the updates-testing repository until release engineering triggers a push (about once a day).

This update has been pushed to testing.
