Description Jaroslav Škarvada 2013-11-15 07:44:05 EST
Description of problem:
Dnf writes misleading message about possible typo if the package is not installed. Maybe this can also happen with its other commands.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf remove acpid
2. dnf downgrade acpid

Actual results:
  * Maybe you meant: acpid
Nothing to do

Expected results:
No "* Maybe you meant: acpid" message

Additional info:
This doesn't happen if the package is installed
# dnf install acpid
# dnd downgrade acpid
...downgrade in progress

The same commands with yum:
a) without acpid
# yum downgrade acpid
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
No Match for available package: acpid-2.0.20-1.fc20.i686
Nothing to do

b) with acpid
# yum downgrade acpid
...downgrade in progress

Maybe the yum output is not the best, but at least less confusing (at least for me).
