Description Patrik Kis 2012-10-24 10:10:24 EDT
Description of problem:
rpm exit with 0 even if key import fail

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
# gpg --gen-key
# gpg -k
pub   2048R/EF271BD7 2012-10-24
uid                  tester <test@test>
sub   2048R/EB178E96 2012-10-24

# gpg --output key.exp --export 
# gpg -a --export > key.exp.txt
# touch key.0
# echo 'dwionfd39feuwqfie' > key.ascii

# rpm --import key.exp ; echo $?
# rpm -qa gpg-pubkey*
# rpm --import key.0 ; echo $?
error: key.0: import read failed(0).
# rpm --import /bin/bash ; echo $?
# rpm --import key.ascii ; echo $?
error: key.ascii: import read failed(0).
# rpm --import key.exp.txt ; echo $?
# rpm -qa gpg-pubkey*

Actual results:
When the key cannot be exported from a file no error is returned.

Expected results:

On RHEL5 this works as expected; therefore this bug can be considered as regression.

rhel58# rpm --import key.exp ; echo $?
error: key.exp: import read failed(-1).
