Description Bruno Wolff III 2015-04-03 23:03:50 UTC
Description of problem:

With you I nused to use the following construct:
yum install -y `cat putpack`
where putback contained a list of packages I had removed because the installed version was not currently in any repo. They typically were packages that were dropped or had soname conflicts. yum would report on packages that no longer existed and still try to install the rest. dnf stops processing at the first unknown package which is annoying if there are a number of dropped packages, since I only find out about one for each run. I don't so much mind that when there is a problem that dnf doesn't do anything, but it would be nice if it reported all of the unknown packages when it runs.

With all the respect, I don't think this is a duplicate of that bug. The request is to print all of the packages that were not found and stop the process after that. It makes a lot of sense to me.

Yes, I agree that this is not a duplicate of bug 1197456.

If a command contains 10 missing packages, then one must repeatedly remove the missing package that dnf reports and rerun. The process would be far less tedious if dnf reported upfront all missing packages that had been requested.

Amen! I'm trying to update my f22 partition to have as many of the same packages installed as were on my f20 partition, and only telling me about 1 at a time is incredibly worthless.
