There are a few common Fedora error codes that can occur when using the operating system. The most common error code is "EACCES," which stands for "permission denied." This error can occur when trying to access a file or directory that the user does not have permission to access. Another common error code is "ENOENT," which stands for "no such file or directory." This error can occur when trying to access a file or directory that does not exist. Finally, the "EPERM" error code stands for "operation not permitted." This error can occur when trying to perform an operation that is not allowed by the operating system.
