Description Karel Srot 2012-06-05 02:59:30 EDT
Present on RHEL5 too

yum-3.2.22-40.el5



+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #769864 +++

Description of problem:
SSIA. 'yum update' does not have this problem, unreachable repos with skip_if_unavailable=1 are skipped

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.2.29-22.el6.noarch

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up a repo:
[test]
name=test
baseurl=<url that is valid but returns 404>
enabled=1
skip_if_unavailable=1
2. run yum --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo test makecache
3.
  
Actual results:
yum exits complaining that it can not download info for test repo:
$BASEURL: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: test. Please verify its path and try again

Expected results:
yum skips repo

You have enabled only one repo, and Yum did skip that.  'skip_if_unavailable=1' does not prevent Yum from printing error messages (that's intended).

Could you try '--enablerepo test --enablerepo other' too?  This works upstream, but I don't have RHEL6 at hands.  Thanks!

This exactly does not work in RHEL:

# yum makecache ; echo $?
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
[other repo metadata fetched]     
<repo_URL>: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: <repo>. Please verify its path and try again
1

yum should ignore the error and keep going through the rest of the repos, it exits with 1 instead.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-06-11 21:22:41 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
