Just out of curiosity. What is the use case of such command?
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'.
