Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427628
yum whatprovides with wildcard does not always work with -C
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:01:17 EST
Description of problem:
When I run
yum -C whatprovides bas\?
and filelists.sqlite.bz2 are not cached, yum does not provide any results.
yum -C whatprovides bash
provides some results, though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum clean all
2. yum whatprovides bash
3. yum -C whatprovides bas?
Error: Caching enabled but no local cache of
//var/cache/yum/fedora/filelists.sqlite.bz2 from fedora
yum should report bash as a match and maybe warn that there may be other
matches, that could not be found because of missing data.
This is just yum doing the right thing, IMO. However by 3.2.9 we should have a
feature which will help greatly with this problem.

What is this feature?
The short version is that yum-updatesd will download the filelists so you'll
never get into the above situation.
