Description Karel Srot 2018-12-12 12:44:18 UTC
Description of problem:

Per bug 1657150.

# yum install aide --installroot=/tmp/root --releasever=/
Error: There are no enabled repos.

In case I would delete /tmp/root/etc/yum.repos.d directory the command would pass. This is expdected behaviour, however it would be great to alter the error message to
  Error: There are no enabled repos in $REPOSDIR
to make the fact that there was an attempt to read repos from the installroot directory.

Comment 1 Jaroslav Mracek 2019-04-09 19:58:44 UTC
I create a patch that enhanced message about absence of enabled repositories - https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/1376.
