Xfce is installed.  I have been running it for ages.
I want a clean, fresh install.

I am not finding a "reinstall" for Xfce.   I am thinking I
have to do a

    # dnf groupremove 'Xfce Desktop'
    # dnf remove @xfce-desktop-environment

Then an Install:
    # dnf group install 'Xfce Desktop'
    # dnf install @xfce-desktop-environment

dnf does not seem to know I already am running Xfce.

But this is what I get running the install:

# dnf group install 'Xfce Desktop'

   - conflicting requests
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting 
packages or '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)

Both of these give the same result:
# dnf install @xfce-desktop-environment --allowerasing
# dnf group install 'Xfce Desktop' --allowerasing
