Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1015957
"Too many open files" before downloading starts
Last modified: 2013-10-09 10:25:29 EDT
Description of problem:
I am running into "Too many open files" error when trying to update F19 systems to F20 using dnf. I have previously reported bug 1012290, but the bug I am seeing now is different. This time the error appears even before any package gets downloaded.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always on all F19 systems I tried.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf --releasever=20 --nogpg update fedora-release
2. dnf update rpm dnf librepo
3. dnf distro-sync
Install 93 Packages
Upgrade 3266 Packages
Remove 7 Packages
Downgrade 34 Packages
Total download size: 2.9 G
Is this ok [y/N]: y
[Errno unknown] Cannot open /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20/fedora/packages/python-configobj-4.7.2-7.fc20.noarch.rpm: Too many open files: 'Input/Output error'
Packages downloaded successfully.
When retrying the "dnf distro-sync" command, the same error is reported for the same package as before.
There are 36 zero-length *.rpm files in /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20/updates-testing/packages.
