Description of problem:
When network connection has not been established and a user runs
for example yum update it seems to rerun from cache and does not notify
the user that it is doing so..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn off the network interface
2. Run yum update
Runs from cache without notifying the user that it's doing so
why it does.
User gets notifyed that it's running from cache and does so
since it's unable to connect/reach the "repo"
"Unable to reach $repo ran from cache"
Or some other informative messages that it's doing it and why..
It operates from a cache if the repomd.xml is within the cache timeout period. It doesn't notify the user b/c at this point it has no reason to. It's not even connected to the network.
