When neither mirrorlist nor baseurl are defined for a repository, dnf will
crash with the following stack trace:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Comment out both "baseurl" and "mirrorlist" in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
2. run dnf check-update

Actual results:
dnf crashes

Expected results:
1. dnf should not crash and skip the misconfigured repository
2. dnf should show an error message explaining the misconfiguration
