Description Richard Jasmin 2015-12-10 05:40:42 EST
Description of problem:
dnf locks are being ignored. this is especially prevalent when using yumex. Not only does the package manager load(it should not), it can access and install applications as well. Even if the system is undergoing an update.

Neither yumex nor dnf aka yum should allow this in either direction. This can cause severe multiarch breakage, even by accident.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.have dnf updating or standing by
2.load yumex
3.dnf something

Actual results:

Expected results:
this should not be. dnf should be preventing this and yumex should not be ignoring the locks either.

We'll take a look whether locks are properly taken when calling DNF Python API.

Hi Tim,

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
