Description ricky.tigg 2018-04-27 13:20:47 UTC
Description of problem: Despite updates-testing has explicitly been disabled permanently, Dnf persists to upgrade packages according to updates-testing repository.

Version-Release number of component: dnf.noarch 2.7.5-12.fc28 @updates-testing

Steps to Reproduce in terminal (In Finnish):
1. # dnf config-manager --set-disabled updates-testing
lähdetunnus          lähdenimi                                      tila
*fedora              Fedora 28 - x86_64                             57 317
*updates             Fedora 28 - x86_64 - Updates                   1 281

   $ dnf repolist

2. # dnf distro-sync
   # dnf clean all
   # dnf -y autoremove

3. # dnf --refresh -y upgrade

Actual results: In step .1 and step .2 there is no mention of 'updates-testing', though packages from that repository are still listed as installed; Check,

$ dnf list installed

In step  3. Dnf upgrades packages according to updates-testing repository.

Expected results: Updates to be from current update repository.
Additional info: In step  3. Dnfdragora deals with updates the way Dnf does.

If installed package has same NEVRA (name, epoch, version, release, and arch) as available package, distro-sync command do not reinstall it, therefore the original repo (update-testing) is correctly mentioned.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Mracek 2018-05-24 15:29:50 UTC
I believe that this not a bug. DNF predict that packages with same name-epoch:version-release.arch have the same content, therefore there is no need to reinstall it. Especially in your case, where package that are in update-testing repo are then moved into update repository if no issue discovered. If package is broken and removed from testing repository, then the new package cannot have the same NEVRA. This is ensured by infrastructure. Anyway thanks for your report.
