Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1243501
`dnf downgrade' treats installed packages as not installed
Last modified: 2015-09-08 12:37:21 EDT
Description of problem:
When downgrading packages using `dnf downgrade <package-name>\*', dnf incorrectly considers already installed packages (aka those eligible for downgrading) as if they were not installed, resulting in `No match for available package' also for already installed packages, which is IMO incorrect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest Fedora Rawhide.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade packages to higher version than the one available in repos.
2. Try to downgrade using `dnf downgrade <package-name>\*'.
For `openldap' package behaves as follows:
[root@vm-086 10353731]# dnf downgrade openldap\*

No match for available package: openldap-2.4.40-14.fc23.i686
No match for available package: openldap-2.4.40-14.fc23.x86_64
No match for available package: openldap-clients-2.4.40-14.fc23.x86_64
No match for available package: openldap-devel-2.4.40-14.fc23.i686
No match for available package: openldap-devel-2.4.40-14.fc23.x86_64
No match for available package: openldap-servers-2.4.40-14.fc23.x86_64
Error: Nothing to do.
[root@vm-086 10353731]# dnf list openldap\*

Apart from resolving #1234763, dnf should also correctly match already installed packages and display correct statements instead of `No match for available package' for these.
- Yum handles this as expected.
- Beforehand I upgraded packages to version 2.4.41-1 (available as a scratch-build in koji) using `yum update openldap*.rpm'.
