Description Till Maas 2010-05-19 13:15:22 EDT
Description of problem:
I just used a wrong repoquery without noticing:
repoquery --repoid=fedora-updates --repoid=fedora  --releasever 13 youtube-dl

The problem is, the that there is no repo with the id fedora-updates, it is just updates. Nevertheless repoquery did not tell me this.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-utils-1.1.26-1.fc12


How reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. repoquery --repoid=INVALID-$RANDOM  yum-utils
  
Actual results:
returns nothing

Expected results:
should tell that there is no such repo.

I added this upstream, however there is a long tradition of:

. repoquery doesn't output anything to stderr in non-quiet mode.

. repoquery is in quiet mode by default.

...but:

repoquery --verbose --repoid=alkfjaljf -a

...will now tell you what you did wrong.

Here are two mistakes I already made when I used repoquery (obviously with other parameters) regarding repo selection, where repoquery wrote something to stderr (the first one might be unintended):

$ repoquery --repofrompath=/dev/null foo
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/repoquery", line 867, in <module>
    main(sys.argv)
  File "/usr/bin/repoquery", line 784, in main
    repoid,repopath = tuple(repo.split(','))
ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack

$ repoquery --repofrompath=blah,/dev/null foo
Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: blah. Please verify its path and try again
Comment 3 James Antill 2010-05-21 10:05:39 EDT
Hmm, apparently errors do come out in quiet mode (I've fixed the description of quiet). So I change the repoquery error message to come out too.

The former was a bug, and has been fixed.
