Comment 3 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-11-20 09:47:12 UTC
Could you confirm that /var/cache/dnf/$basearch/$release/expired_repos.json is an empty file? That should not happen.. A reproducer that creates it would be great.

Comment 4 Lukas Slebodnik 2013-11-20 11:02:52 UTC
sh-4.2# ls -l /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20/expired_repos.json

Comment 5 Ales Kozumplik 2013-11-20 12:56:48 UTC
Jan this seems related to your json storage patches. Will you please handle this?

Comment 6 Lukas Slebodnik 2013-11-20 13:30:24 UTC
I forgot to write in the comment 4. I don't know how to reproduce it.
The problem occurred on 2013-11-20 09:23:29. I didn't use dnf at this time.
As you can see, file expired_repos.json was modified at "11:23"

I try dnf, but sometimes I use also yum. So it may be related.

Comment 7 Honza Silhan 2013-11-22 12:29:55 UTC
Has it worked after "11:23"? Is in your dir "/var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20" file "expired_repos" (without json extention)? Had you interrupted dnf job sometime before the error occured?

Comment 8 Lukas Slebodnik 2013-11-22 13:13:42 UTC
Yes, dnf works well. It occurred just a once and I am not sure how to reproduce.

At the moment:
sh-4.2# ls -l /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20/expired_repos.json
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 2 Nov 22 13:37 /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20/expired_repos.json
sh-4.2# cat /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/20/expired_repos.json

Comment 9 Honza Silhan 2013-11-22 17:18:03 UTC
Although we don't know what caused that error, I've fixed it for the case that the file is empty as it's look like (still should never happen). It will now continue execution and print warning: "expired_repos.json is empty file". If you see this error message please report it again.
