    Welcome to the forums!

    If the package manager for your distribution keeps a log of files installed/updated, go to it and see what files were updated on that date, then install the previously released packages over them. It might work.

    Otherwise, you might have to reinstall unless you have a backup of your system dated before the date in question.

    Most log files are kept in /var/log, but I'm not sure about any files for YUM because I've not run Fedora in about 6 years. Maybe someone that runs it can provide better info.
