RFE: include metadata download progress callbacks in repoquery
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
repoquery issues a warning about some repomd.xml, while yum doesn't:
[root@beck x86_64]# yum update
Setting up Update Process

Error: Missing Dependency: qt-x11(x86-64) >= 1:4.5.2 is needed by package vlc-1.0.0-1.fc11.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root@beck x86_64]# repoquery 'qt-x11'
Not using downloaded repomd.xml because it is older than what we have:
Current : Thu Jul 23 07:48:06 2009
Downloaded: Wed Jul 22 17:30:21 2009
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. both tools to exhibit consistent behavior.
2. repoquery (rsp. whatever module underneath might be in charge) to raise a better warning, e.g. one indicating which repomd.xml (rsp. repository) might be affected. The current warning is not helpful.
I would assume this behavior to originate from yum (or yum-metadata-parser) not to be able to cope with the broken repos, yesterday's push of updates has caused.
Yum will issue the warning if it sees that (it only happens when checking the repos.).
The thing is yum will output progress for what repo MD is downloaded, while repoquery doesn't ... Personally I think the fix should be to hookup the progress callbacks in repoquery.
Also you can do "yum repolist -v" and look for which one has the timestamp, if you need to know for some reason.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
