Of course. Try apt. It is a command line utility, but all its actions are
logged (/var/log/apt) (so it's possible to step back - manually, that is).

To install a package and its dependants from a repository: apt install <name
of package>

to install a rpm file and its dependants: apt install name_of_rpm_file.rpm
