Hello, this is my mistake, I forgot to create the YUM/DNF specific 
mirror lists for Fedora 26.
I've just added the missing files, now you can wait until mirrors are 
synchronized.

In case you can't wait, there is an alternative way to install.
You can manually edit file "/etc/yum.repos.d/trinity.repo", disable the 
"mirrorlist" lines, and enable the "baseurl" lines.
Then the DNF command will work, using the Trinity mirroring mechanism 
instead of the YUM/DNF mirroring mechanism.
