man yum says "yum clean cache" is still valid, but it doesn't work
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:01 EST
Description of problem:
The description of yum says that "command is one of" and lists (among other
clean [ packages | headers | metadata | cache | dbcache | all ]
but the Clean Options section does not list "cache".
The actual yum command responds to "yum clean cache" with
"Error: invalid clean argument: 'cache'"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Issue "yum clean cache", receive the error message.
2. Issue "man yum", read the top sections of the man page.
3. Observe that top part of man page claims "yum clean cache" is valid.
man page says "yum clean cache" is valid, but it really isn't.
man page matches code.
thanks - I've checked this fix in to upstream.
