Description Pete Travis 2014-02-18 20:53:10 EST
Operations executing dnf as root do not appear to operate on the same cache/metadata as those executed as a regular user. for example:

$ dnf clean all
$ sudo dnf clean all
$ dnf check-update #metadata is refreshed
$ sudo dnf check-update #metadata is refreshed again

$ dnf --version

Comment 1 Parag Nemade 2014-02-18 23:13:25 EST
you should install dnf-plugins-core package that will install noroot plugin which will then check the root privileges.
Comment 2 Pete Travis 2014-02-19 02:15:02 EST
Parag, your commend seems better suited for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1066747 :)
Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2014-02-19 03:01:21 EST
This works as expected but we didn't document it well. Upstream commit dfd08eb remedies this.
