Description David Shaw 2017-01-04 21:03:48 UTC
Description of problem:

If "yum update --downloadonly" is interrupted or fails during download for some reason (bad network, etc), it leaves its temp files behind.  Unfortunately, when the command is run again, yum leaves these temp files in place rather than resuming them where it left off.

Worse, the temp files are never cleaned up.  Even "yum clean all" ignores them, so the space is lost.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Do a yum update --downloadonly
2.  Hit ctrl-C while it's mid download
3.  Run yum update --downloadonly again

Actual results:

Various #####.tmp files left behind in /var/cache/yum

Expected results:

No leftover temp files.

Additional info:

This seems identical to (fixed) Fedora bug 1045806.  Can that fix be applied to RHEL?
