Could you elaborate on what's didn't work when you build Emacs with the
library provided by the Fedora package manager, please ?

For what it worth :
Here I'm on Fedora 34, building Emacs regularly from GIT (branches
27/28/master) and everything is working as expected. I could update
packages, use gnus with gmane, use elfeed etc.
