Description of problem:

dnf don't check if all packages in a group are installed when doing

 dnf group install <group-name>

(I was think that was the whole point with groups or ?)


On system with mate-desktop group not installed, install a mate *package*:

$ dnf install mate-control-center

now, for some reason dnf thinks mate-desktop group is installed:

$ dnf groupinstall mate-desktop
Group 'MATE' is already installed, skipping.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do

However, very few of the mate package in mate-desktop group are installed:

for pkg in $(dnf group info mate-desktop | grep mate); do rpm -q $pkg; done

package f23-backgrounds-mate is not installed
package libmateweather is not installed
package mate-applets is not installed
package mate-backgrounds is not installed
package mate-calc is not installed
package mate-desktop is not installed
package mate-dictionary is not installed
package mate-disk-usage-analyzer is not installed
package mate-icon-theme is not installed
package mate-media is not installed
package mate-menus-preferences-category-menu is not installed
package mate-notification-daemon is not installed
package mate-panel is not installed
package mate-polkit is not installed
package mate-power-manager is not installed
package mate-screensaver is not installed
package mate-screenshot is not installed
package mate-search-tool is not installed
package mate-session-manager is not installed
package mate-system-log is not installed
package mate-system-monitor is not installed
package mate-terminal is not installed
package mate-themes is not installed

I think yum did this correct and check that all packages in group was in fact installed and installed all missing packages on "group install".

Hi, do you have strict=false in your dnf.conf?
Comment 2 Terje Røsten 2015-12-09 08:13:30 EST
Default config:

Please use command `dnf group install <groupname>` (groupinstall is not documented).
If you still experience the problem, reopen and provide additional information with executed commands and their output and dnf version (rpm -q dnf). Thanks.
