Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create custom provider, product
2. Create a repo with url "http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/x86_64/os/" - literally - 'forget' to replace $releasever
3. Sync this repo
"The specified repo does not match the specified product"
A better error message, something about that the url gives a 404, or that it's not a valid repo.
Better message from pulp.log:
RepoError: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: . Please verify its path and try again
*** Bug 761159 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This is no longer an issue - it now says "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: . Please verify its path and try again" in the error. (Along with a nice stack trace for debugging purposes.)
