Description of problem:
Disclamer: I realize that this can be 'feature', but it definitelly is a yum vs. dnf difference in behavior.

'yum upgrade' upgrades debuginfo packages even if debuginfo repos are not enabled, DNF ignores debuginfo packages from disabled repos.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-0.3.11-3.git7bdc9e1.fc19.noarch

How reproducible:
100 %

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install some debuginfo package, e.g. krb5-debuginfo: $ yum install krb5-debuginfo
2. downgrade the package to an older version: $ yum downgrade krb5-debuginfo
3. try to do full upgrade: $ yum upgrade
4. compare the result with $ dnf upgrade

Actual results:
DNF doesn't upgrade debuginfo packages.

$ sudo yum upgrade

Expected results:
DNF behaves in the same way as YUM... Sorry! :-)

Additional info:
Debuginfo repo is disabled in fedora.repo file, but yum (I guess) enables it for upgrades if any *debuginfo package is installed. I'm attaching my fedora.repo file.

Comment 1 Ales Kozumplik 2013-10-30 13:04:36 UTC
This is done through the auto-updates-debuginfo package. Even the comment 0 sounds like you are a bit confused where this functionality is coming from and it doesn't look like a consistent and clear feature to me. 

Leaving this at low prio with a negative outlook.

Comment 4 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2014-09-03 04:52:59 UTC
I was going to file a new bug but ran into this RFE.

Would it be possible to please provide a command to update the installed debuginfo packages on a system? I think yum has an update-debuginfo plugin that is activated when debuginfo packages are installed. Something similar for dnf would be nice. If not a plugin that updates the packages automatically, can an "update" command be added to the debuginfo-install plugin or an extension to make a debuginfo-update command that will provide similar functionality?

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

dnf-plugins-core-0.1.2-99.1134.20140828gitcad4521.fc21.noarch

Thanks,
Ankur

Comment 5 Andy Grover 2015-05-12 20:15:13 UTC
I thought dnf wasn't supposed to have any feature regressions against yum. Is this not the case? I just upgraded to F22 beta and I'm having to update my debuginfo packages by hand.

Comment 6 Jan Zeleny 2015-05-13 06:55:52 UTC
If that was the case, we would never implement dnf in the first place, as there would be no reason to. Our goal is to have as few use case (not feature) differences as possible. The way how we work towards that goal is to carefully evaluate each request, put it in the context of the entire distribution, other requests that we have and prioritize accordingly.

That being said, what you seem to be requesting here is a plugin that would enable repos that are marked as origin of installed packages, does that sound right? I'm not sure it makes much sense to limit this functionality just to debuginfo packages.

Anyway, I'm moving this to dnf-plugins-extras, as it breaks the semantics of enabled/disabled repos and it therefore should not be a core functionality of dnf.

Comment 7 Marek Zdunek 2015-06-26 11:53:02 UTC
Where is auto-update-debuginfo for dnf? I miss that so much after upgrade to fc22.

Comment 8 Michael Mráka 2015-07-13 11:38:10 UTC
If you want to get updates for debuginfo packages just enable *-debuginfo repositories.

Comment 9 Fabrice Bellet 2015-07-13 18:20:33 UTC
The problem with enabling *-debuginfo repos is that we may install packages from updates-testing-debuginfo when updates-testing repo is not enabled. Enabled debuginfo repos should be limited to the set of non-debuginfo repos already enabled.

Comment 10 Christian Stadelmann 2015-11-14 12:25:46 UTC
How about doing this:
1. add a new plugin to dnf-plugins-core named "debuginfo-upgrade" (similiar to "debuginfo-install")
2. It does a `dnf upgrade`, with all -debuginfo repositories enabled for enabled repositories.

Right now I am doing this as an alias:
alias upgrade-debuginfo='dnf --enablerepo=fedora-debuginfo --enablerepo=updates-debuginfo --enablerepo=updates-testing-debuginfo'
which works fine but is not flexible because it doesn't respect which repos are enabled. If updates-testing is disabled, incorrect debuginfo packages will be installed.
