Description Olivier BONHOMME 2017-06-21 11:04:11 EDT
When using the tool repotrack for fetching some RPMS provided on a repository reachable in file mode (file:///), the download fails with the error file:///<XXXXX>/GeoIP-1.4.8-1.el6.x86_64.rpm: [Errno -1] Package does not match 
intended download.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): yum-3.4.3-150.el7

How reproducible: Configure yum.conf with a repository with an URI starting by file:/// and try to fetch a RPM with the repotrack command.

Actual results: The download fails with the following stack trace !

Downloading GeoIP-1.4.8-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/repotrack", line 256, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/repotrack", line 250, in main
    path = repo.getPackage(pkg)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/yumRepo.py", line 1070, in getPackage
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/yumRepo.py", line 1037, in _getFile
    raise e
yum.Errors.NoMoreMirrorsRepoError: failure: GeoIP-1.4.8-1.el6.x86_64.rpm from cots: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
file:///<XXXXX>/GeoIP-1.4.8-1.el6.x86_64.rpm: [Errno -1] Package does not match intended download.

Expected results:

The RPM and all its dependencies are downloading successfully.

Additional info: I viewed the yum code and the errors seems to be into the yumRepo.py file when URLGrabber is called. The copy_local parameter is missing whereas it is used on all others calls.

Patching that call adding copy_local parameter with value 1 resolves the issue.
