Description james 2004-11-20 17:05:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/7.54 (X11; Linux i686; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
If yum is configured with "gpgcheck=1" and then attempts to install 
or update a package that is unsigned, it fails with "unsigned package 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure /etc/yum.conf with "gpgcheck=1"
2. yum update <some-unsigned-package>

Actual Results:  unsigned package <path>
yum dies

Expected Results:  yum should generate a warning about the package 
not being signed, but should continue.

yum should NEVER "bail", "punt", or "quit" because of a recoverable 
error or, especially, because of a warning condition.

1. yum doesn't die, it exits with an error message.
2. an unsigned package when gpgcheck=1 is an error. If it was not then
a  person who broke into a repository could simply put an unsigned rpm
into the repository and 'boom' they own all those machines.

this is not a bug.
