You may want to look at the package-cleanup --orphans command. This
lists all packages on your system that are not in a currently-configured
repository (for example, because they’ve been removed from Fedora,
because you’ve manually downloaded and installed them from a third
party, or because you’ve installed something from updates-testing
because you think you can usefully test it).

Hope this helps,
