Description Davide Repetto 2015-10-09 09:52:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Partial downloads are not resumed.
This proves to be problematic on slow or unstable links while downloading big rpms.
If the connection goes away and dnf is executed again, the fully downloaded RPMS are correctly kept, but those two or three partially downloaded RPMs that where in the barrel are always restarted from scratch.

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

How reproducible:

IIRC dnf had this feature before! I suddenly realized that DNF is always downloading a big package from start while I was thinking that I'm resuming it.
I switched to yum for now.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 14:09:58 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
