Description Nils Philippsen 2014-08-28 12:24:34 UTC
Description of problem:
"dnf update <a list of local package files>" will install package files that aren't yet installed.

I ran into a problem in the current F21 version of httpd and wanted to downgrade to a previous version. To do that I used "koji download-build ... httpd-<version>-<release>", which downloaded all subpackages into a temporary directory, even those I haven't installed yet. Running "dnf update ./*.rpm" wanted to install even these subpackages I hadn't installed before.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-0.6.0-1.fc21.noarch
hawkey-0.5.0-2.fc21.x86_64
python-hawkey-0.5.0-2.fc21.x86_64

How reproducible:
Reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "dnf update <some not yet installed package(s)>"
2. "dnf download <the same package(s)>"
3. "dnf update <path(s) to the downloaded package file(s)>"

Actual results:
Step 1 will not install the package(s).
Step 3 will install the package(s)

Expected results:
Both steps won't install the not yet installed package(s).

Hi, thanks for the report. Right, step 3 shouldn't install not-yet-installed packages.

Comment 2 Honza Silhan 2014-09-16 19:23:34 UTC
Fixed in the upstream.
