Description Corey Ashford 2015-09-21 19:29:49 EDT
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run this command:
dnf repoquery --repofrompath foo,ftp://mirror.web-ster.com/fedora/releases/22/Everything/x86_64/os/ --repo foo

2. Observe the usage error in the output

Actual results:

usage: dnf [--allowerasing] [-b] [-C] [-c [config file]] [-d [debug level]] [--debugsolver] [--showduplicates]
           [-e ERRORLEVEL] [--rpmverbosity [debug level name]] [-q] [-v] [-y] [--assumeno] [--version]
           [--installroot [path]] [--enablerepo [repo]] [--disablerepo [repo]] [-x [package]]
           [--disableexcludes [repo]] [--repofrompath [repo,path]] [--noplugins] [--nogpgcheck]
           [--disableplugin [plugin]] [--color COLOR] [--releasever RELEASEVER] [--setopt SETOPTS] [--refresh] [-4]
           [-6] [-h]
Command line error: argument --repofrompath: bad format: foo

Expected results:
A listing of all of the packages in the "foo" repository, and only in the "foo" repository

Additional info:
If I eliminate the --repo option, I no longer get an error about the --repofrompath option, but I get results from the default repos in addition to my "foo" repo.

My current work-around is to use the deprecated repoquery command.
Comment 1 Radek Holy 2015-09-22 03:01:49 EDT
Actually, it says "bad format: foo". In fact, DNF thinks that by "--repo" you mean "--repofrompath" again and it expects the correct format. This is a feature of the Python's argument parser [1]. This in combination with our problematic design of argument parsing process causes this error. We are working on it.
