@pschneider1968Other users on Reddit having the same issue reported a more detailed error message.
Error: Transaction test error: package microsoft-edge-stable-115.0.1901.183-1.x86_64 does not verify: RSA signature: BAD (header tag 1002: invalid OpenPGP signature: Parsing an OpenPGP packet: Failed to parse Signature Packet because: Signature appears to be created by a non-conformant OpenPGP implementation, see <https://github.com/rpm-software-management/rpm/issues/2351>. because: Malformed MPI: leading bit is not set: expected bit 1 to be set in 0 (0))

I have had Edge installed on this Fedora box for quite some time, and I have succesfully installed updates in the past for at least three or four times. So to me it seems that the (initially) imported GPG signing key is fine, but something in the way the most recent Edge update was signed by Microsoft must have changed, in a way that doesn't work out now.

@pschneider1968Quite interestingly, the version from the Beta channel (with the same version and build number) i.e. microsoft-edge-beta-115.0.1901.183-1.x86_64.rpm does NOT exhibit this problem. I can download it with wget and install it with
rpm -U microsoft-edge-beta-115.0.1901.183-1.x86_64.rpm
without getting a GPG check failure error message. So this one seems to be signed correctly. Same with the DEV version 116.

This is what worked for me on Fedora:
sudo dnf update -y --exclude=microsoft-edge-stable-115.0.1901.183-1

Thank you for reporting this issue! I've reached out to the feature owner asking them to investigate. I'll let you know once I have more info.

Thanks for your feedback! I hope the engineers will find the reason for this issue and will be able to fix it and publish a corrected package soon.

@Jeremiah-VThe issue seems to be resolved by now. A new stable version microsoft-edge-stable-115.0.1901.188-1 could be installed on my box with dnf update just now.
