Description Igor Gnatenko 2015-01-28 23:13:33 UTC
I have repository on my local filesystem and `dnf download` crashing with OSError because it's not downloading pkg and trying to move pkg.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dnf/cli/main.py", line 134, in _main
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dnf/cli/cli.py", line 1059, in run
    return self.command.run(self.base.extcmds)

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/dnf/plugins/local/bc-1.06.95-13.fc22.x86_64.rpm'

Hi Igor, what was your $PWD? Does it work with root access?

> Hi Igor, what was your $PWD? Does it work with root access?
$PWD = ~/

yes, it works with root access, because it's copying rpm file from local repo (only-root-rw) and removing rpm from local repo.

it's need to be fixed in code while we checking from what repo we are downloading package and repo url =~ file://.* - don't do os.unlink()

Comment 3 Honza Silhan 2015-02-13 11:03:10 UTC
Igor, if you already know how to fix this, make a PR, please. Otherwise I am giving it a low prio.

Comment 4 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-03-03 16:47:24 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

I was just filing a bug about this, but discovered this one.

*NB* all the following commands are executed as non-root.

Create a local repository:

mkdir /tmp/repo
cd /tmp/repo
dnf download bash
createrepo .
ls -l

Observe that the local repo contains a bash-*.rpm file and the
repodata/ subdirectory.

Create a yum.conf pointing to the local repository:

mkdir /tmp/download
cd /tmp/download
cat > yum.conf <<'EOF'


Now download files using the local repository:

cd /tmp/download
dnf download -v -c yum.conf bash

The 'dnf download' command works -- that is not the issue.  However
go and look back in the /tmp/repo directory.  The dnf command has
deleted the original RPM in the local repository!

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

What is a PR?  IMO this is a very serious bug.  dnf download
should not touch original repositories.

Comment 7 Radek Holy 2015-04-13 07:41:48 UTC
Moreover, I think that the plugin should not *move* the files, it should be enough to *copy* them since dnf.Base takes care of removing the packages downloaded using "download_packages" and it already tests whether they were really downloaded or whether they are available in a local repository.

Fixed in

I applied your test patch to dnf-plugins-core, and I can confirm that
it fixes the case outlined in comment 5.
