yum.metalink.MetaLinkRepoErrorParseFail: File /var/tmp/yum-newman-PhoCVC/fedora-source/metalink.xml does not exist

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


How reproducible:


Actual results:

trace back + downloading is not working

Expected results:

Simple "File /var/tmp/yum-newman-PhoCVC/fedora-source/metalink.xml does not exist" is enough, I guess. Not sure from which file is the not existing file being referenced, though.
Comment 1 Michal Nowak 2009-06-25 07:59:56 EDT
While I understand that the problem might happen due to wrong permissions in tmp o yum cache, it looks like yumdownloader might run better and do not write out backtraces when permissions are not ideal.
Comment 2 seth vidal 2009-06-26 11:24:36 EDT
I've changed what the MetaLinkRepoErrorParseFail derives from. The next update to yum should include a patch which will allow yumdownloader to output a sensible-ish error and not traceback.
Comment 3 Rudd-O DragonFear 2009-06-26 19:22:12 EDT
thanks, seth.  but it should still -- methinks -- not be a repoerror -- if the file is not found, it should be an ioerror or an oserror (never quite understood the diff between the two).
