Ok, I have not used Fedora since early 2009, when I moved to Macs, but it looks like 'dnf' is the follow on package manager to 'yum', starting with Fedora 18 in parallel and is now the default, replacing yum since Fedora 22.
In either case, you should be using:
sudo dnf install R
where R is a meta-package, that will install all of R and its dependencies. You are obviating the value of the package manager by using the incantation that you have above. You don't want to install the individual RPMs via the package manager separately and that is likely what is getting you into trouble here.

>> That is the easiest way to install R on Fedora. Yes, it may be a version release or two out of date, especially since 3.2.3 was just released this past week. It will typically take a few days or perhaps a bit longer, before the RPM maintainers release a new binary.

The Fedora SIG list is for what would typically be OS specific issues, that would not be applicable to other useRs on other Linuxen, Windows and OS X. Installation problems would typically be included in that category.
