Description Florian Morgan 2015-10-30 05:55:36 EDT
Description of problem:
When using --resolve option with dnf download, the requested package is not downloaded when already install in the system with a previous version.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using dnf-plugins-core-0.1.13-1.fc22

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the bare minimum Fedora 22 (I'm using Docker with the container: 'fedora:22'/'8ee526697d01') without updates.
2. Install dnf-plugins-core-0.1.13-1.fc22
3. Make sure libgcc is installed in a 'base' version: libgcc-5.1.1-1.fc22.x86_64
4. Run 'dnf download --resolve --destdir /packages-cache libgcc.x86_64'

Actual results:
Nothing is downloaded in /packages-cache

Expected results:
libgcc-5.1.1-4.fc22.x86_64.rpm should be downloaded in /packages-cache

Additional info:
When not using the '--resolve' option, the package is successfully downloaded.

we'll take a look.
Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2016-07-08 05:33:49 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 15:58:39 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Comment 4 Igor Gnatenko 2016-07-19 18:11:14 EDT
probably workaround could be to use --installroot, but still this is a bug.
Comment 5 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 01:01:34 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
