Description Nick Coghlan 2016-04-18 08:29:10 UTC
Description of problem:

"sudo dnf upgrade-to --allowerasing docker-2:1.9.1" fails, but "sudo dnf upgrade-to --allowerasing docker-2:1.9.1-9.gitee06d03.fc23" works

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to update to a specific version with just the NEV (no R or A)

Actual results:

Error: No packages marked for upgrade.

Expected results:

Same behaviour as when specifying the full NEVRA

Additional info:

"dnf info" works correctly when given only the NEV information

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

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-25 07:23:14 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

CC jmracek: Jarda this seem to be yet another instance of wrong subject handling.

Comment 4 Jaroslav Mracek 2016-11-29 07:22:13 UTC
Here is patch that solves the problem by making from upgrade-to alias for upgrade: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/665
