All i misread... python binary doesnt exist.. that is consistent with
what rpm is saying.

There are a lot of things which are python based.. yum and firstboot
are just the tip of the iceberg. A Fedora system without python will
be to most people be highly dysfunctional.

Honestly, the fact that firstboot failed saved you lots of headaches
trying to use that system on a day to day basis. It would have sucked
far worse if started trying to use the system and kept running into
applications and tools which failed to even start because python was
missing.

Always check your media.
