Description jcastran 2019-05-28 20:34:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Packages are only accessible when a specific module or stream is enabled. Reposync is not able to sync the repository because it has to abide by these rules. The workaround would be to enable all modules, sync, then switch to any alternative streams or any remaining un-enabled modules, then sync again. 

This should be a simply run reposync and it syncs the entire repository without having to consider what's missing

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reposync --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-rpms"

Actual results:
reposync only downloads packages that are accessible

Expected results:
reposync should download the entire repository to include modules that are not enabled or even disabled

The other workaround would be to mark the repo as a hotfix repo: add --setopt=repo_id.module_hotfixes=1 switch to command line.

Comment 3 Marek Blaha 2019-06-04 07:07:17 UTC
PR https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf-plugins-core/pull/339 fixes the bug. Reposync now should download all the packages of the repo regardless the modules/streams status.
