confusing message when removing packages
Last modified: 2015-02-01 17:56:04 EST
Description of problem:
Running dnf remove <somepkg> results in the following output:
Installed size: 3.2 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages: <--- This line is highly suspicious
Running Transaction Check
- why it prints "Downloading packages" when I actually want it to remove packages?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf remove systemd\*
prints Downloading packages
no "Downloading packages" msg
Might be very confusing for not experienced hardcore admins
