I've been using Fedora for some years now (probably 5). I have participated in a bunch of beta when new releases were approaching. At my new job I'm building our next infrastructure, which will be based on docker. So When I joined 2 months ago I installed the official docker packages following these instructions. Things worked well.
I've been willing to beta test Fedora32, because I can, I like using unstable software (I've been using firebox unstable since probably 2000 when it was called mozilla suite) and filling bug reports. In the past I've been bitten by selinux once - and nits of issues with gnupg - but nothing that prevented me from going back quickly to work. So I've been wanting to use 32 for a while but was reluctant because of :
root@saraan firewalld# dnf update
Docker CE Stable - x86_64 725 B/s | 577 B 00:00

Ignoring repositories: docker-ce-stable, docker-ce-test
And I wanted to make sure that I could still work. I've asked on Mastodon/Twitter when the docker repos would have 32 equivalent without any answers. I when to the docker forums and posted there.I didn't get a single reply.
Finally, last Sunday I updated to 32 without a single issue. Until yesterday when I did a
docker-compose up and that docker project dind't work at all (issue connecting to the http interface of the service / issue between the app and it's postgresql backend). I tried cleaning up everything I could, it didn't help, nor did qwanting, googling or binging.
journalctl -e -u docker.servicel was of course almost empty :
No non-localhost DNS nameservers are left in resolv.conf. Using default external servers: nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 8.8.4...
Which I'm very unhappy about. So I ended doing a quick search on twitter and found a twitt in japanese which gave me a hint. I confirmed the hint :

Switching the backend for firewalld from nftable to iptable did fix my issue. Thanks twitter.
