Downgrade fails with broken dep with --setopt=strict=False
Last modified: 2017-02-10 10:56:16 EST
Description of problem:
Downgrade command behave differently that upgrade. When any of argument has broken dep it always fails with --strict=False where upgrade command succeed (DNF added skip-broken option behavior as a default)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Downgrade of package A requires downgrade package B
2. dnf --setopt=strict=False --alloweraning --exclude=B A C (Fail - no package downgraded)
Fail - no package downgraded
Succeed - Downgraded package C
This case shows different behavior as upgrade shows.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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'
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.
It should be fixed by Pull-request: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/666
Bugs fixed in version of dnf-2.0.1-1.
