Comment 1 Radek Holy 2015-09-15 09:07:30 UTC
Just out of curiosity. What is the use case of such command?

Comment 2 Alexander Todorov 2015-09-16 10:20:37 UTC
OK, my intial command was a bit different, something like 

# dnf install --allowerasing ./b/*.x86_64.rpm  -y --exclude="BEDTools"

but BEDTools was still getting pulled in. So to figure out if something else is pulling it as a dependency or dnf is misbehaving I've devised the above command. My expectation was it will abort b/c no packages were specified as yum does.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
