Unable to read group information from repositories
Description of problem:
anaconda 16.14 does not try to grab its inside URL such as "http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-16&arch=i386" when it can not find the install source on the iso image, which stops the installation process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Fedora-16-Alpha.TC1-i386-netinst.iso on "Virtual Machine Manager 0.8.7"
2. Do not pass any boot argument which can change the default repo, like " repo=http://download.englab.nay.redhat.com/..... "
anaconda reports an error like the attachment looks
anaconda work correctly

Maybe related to:
According to mirrormanager, there is no fedora-16 repo configured yet. This should have been completed when F16 branched from rawhide. CC'ing dgilmore for help completing this task.
# repo=fedora-16, arch=i386
# repo=fedora-16, arch=s390x
# repo=fedora-16, arch=sparc
# repo=fedora-16, arch=x86_64
This qualifies as a blocker in that it is an incomplete task included in the branching process, it introduces unnecessary work arounds for a large portion of the installation test matrix, and it just needs to be completed.
I think this is the same core problem from 727510. The mirrorlink? script isn't acknowledging fedora-16 as a valid repo= value.
Will the alpha freeze hold any fix up?
Maybe a heads up about this bug to the test list?

No, there was an additional change needed so that the MirrorManager understood "repo=fedora-16". That change should be rolled out to production shortly.

Thanks, I mentioned the issue on test@ (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test/2011-August/101596.html).

Agreed. +1 Alpha Blocker
*** Bug 728422 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This bug has been confirmed fixed with a change to MirrorManager configuration. If it reoccurs, please re-open this bug or open a new one.
How has it been confirmed? - F16 Alpha TC1 netinstall ISO still failed for me half an hour ago.
