Description Ville Skyttä 2008-02-02 20:14:24 UTC
yum.cron.daily treats all non-zero yum exit codes as equal in CHECK_ONLY
configurations.  Today I got several mails from it like the below because the
EPEL mirror I use was not available (yeah, this is on EL but I think Fedora is
the upstream for yum-cron there so it'd be better to fix it in Fedora I think):

----
/etc/cron.daily/yum.cron:

New updates available for host xxx:


Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: epel
Updates downloaded, use "yum -C update" manually to install them.
----

yum check-update is documented to return 0 if no updates are available, and 100
if there are updates available.  yum.cron.daily should not treat all non-zero
exit codes as "updates are available" ones.  I have mixed feelings about whether
it should even mail me if a repo was not available, but certainly not like it
currently does :)

Similar to the CHECK_FIRST solution presented in bug 429716.  For CHECK_ONLY
setups, looks like this should always be done.  Working on both bugs now.
