Description Christian Stadelmann 2014-10-12 12:17:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I run `$ dnf --cacheonly upgrade` quite frequently. Every time the cache expires it updates the cache from network. This is not what the man page says:

-C, --cacheonly
Run  entirely  from  system cache, don't update the cache and use it even in case it is expired.
DNF uses a separate cache for each user under which it executes. The cache  for  the  root  user  is called the system cache. This switch allows a regular user read-only access to  the  system  cache  which usually  is  more fresh then the user's and thus he does not have to wait for metadata sync.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf 0.6.2-1.fc21 from F21 Alpha

How reproducible:

Additional Info:
There was a similar bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1048468 so this seems to be a regression.
Comment 1 Michal Luscon 2014-10-20 08:06:00 EDT
Unfortunately, I am not able to reproduce this bug in dnf 0.6.2-1. Is there any difference between your system and fresh F21 alpha installation?
Comment 2 Christian Stadelmann 2014-10-26 06:45:38 EDT
Yes. I have set root's umask to 077 and have installed all available updates.
