Podman 4 is not in Fedora 35

Podman 4 will not officially ship in Fedora 35 because it has breaking changes from Podman 3. Fedora has well-founded policies that forbid updating a package in a Fedora release, like 35, that has breaking changes. This is true for most Linux distributions that are dependent on release versions.

However, the Podman team has set up a COPR (Cool Other Package Repo) so that you can still install Podman and its dependencies on Fedora 35. It is called rhcontainerbot/podman4. COPRs are not officially supported by Fedora or its infrastructure. The podman4 COPR also has builds for Fedora 36 and CentOS 9 stream. There are even Fedora 36 builds as well.

Using podman4 COPR

Adding the podman4 COPR is very easy. Instructions for doing so can be found on the rhcontainerbot/podman4 project site. But for a quick start, it is simply:

    $ sudo dnf copr enable rhcontainerbot/podman4

Once that command completes, you can install Podman.

    $ sudo dnf install podman

Note: If you are upgrading an existing Podman 3 install and wish to run Podman 4’s new network stack, be certain you that the aardvark and netavark packages are also installed (they are part of the same COPR). You will also need to then run podman system reset --force before running any new containers.
