Description of problem:
`yum-builddep libreoffice` fails to complete due to `Error: Invalid version flag: if` on Docker image `fedora:30`

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. docker run -it fedora:30
2. yum install -y yum-utils
3. yum-builddep libreoffice

Actual results:
The command finishes with "Error: Invalid version flag: if" and advises that `--skip-broken` can be used.

Expected results:
The command should terminated successfully without a warning even though `--skip-broken` probably allows to work around the issue.

Additional info:

`dnf builddep libreoffice` works just fine.

Comment 2 Michal Domonkos 2019-07-18 07:55:46 UTC
Unfortunately, YUM-3 doesn't support boolean deps.  Moreover, YUM-3 is deprecated and completely removed from Fedora 31.  Please use "dnf builddep" from the dnf-plugins-core package instead.
