Description Chris Siebenmann 2015-06-29 21:46:24 UTC
Description of problem:

If you install python-dnf-plugins-extras-local, the plugin
doesn't actually work because nothing creates the default
/var/lib/dnf/plugins/local directory that it attempts to save RPMs to.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install a fresh Fedora 22 machine
2. do 'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-local'
3. use dnf to install some package you don't already have installed
4. at the end of the install, dnf will report:

	local: '/var/lib/dnf/plugins/local' is not a directory

Actual results:

The local plugin prints an error and does not save a copy of the
RPMs you just installed.

Expected results:

The local plugin saves RPMs to /var/lib/dnf/plugins/local.

Additional info:

Note that neither /var/lib/dnf/plugins nor /var/lib/dnf/plugins/local
is created.

Yes, my fault. Will fix ASAP.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 15:07:28 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 3 Chris Siebenmann 2016-07-19 15:54:49 UTC
This remains a bug in Fedora 24. It reproduces exactly as it did in Fedora

Comment 4 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2016-07-21 12:41:18 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
