Description Stefan Kirrmann 2015-09-08 11:08:37 UTC
Description of problem:

reposync help lists --repo as argument for the repository id, but this generates an error "Befehlszeilenfehler: argument --repofrompath: bad format: f22-updates"

If --repoid is used as argument the reposync works. So I guess it's an error in the reposync help output.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf reposync -p fedora --repo /mnt/somewhere

Actual results:
error about bad format of argument

Expected results:
download of repo to /mnt/somewhere

Comment 1 Radek Holy 2015-09-08 13:41:34 UTC
This is a know issue, unfortunately. Actually, the cause is the introduction of the --repofrompath option and the problematic design of our argument parser. We are currently working on improving the argument parsing part.

FTR, the issue was first reported here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1193851#c7 I don't know how to handle this situation. I mean whether to close this as a duplicate or track the issue here.

--repo parameter still does not work :/

Comment 12 Mike Goodwin 2016-07-20 13:25:06 UTC
It likely won't until DNF2 arrives - just anecdotally it seems like that's the direction the project went as I observed most bugs in Github had a similar reply from the authors. So I think they're not bothering to fix menial bugs like this in favor of the complete DNF2 rewrite. 

Granted, I agree with keeping actual bugs open, since it's still broken.

Comment 13 Igor Gnatenko 2016-07-21 14:37:02 UTC
Fixed as part of DNF 2.0 which will be available at some point soon.
