From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461)

Description of problem:
If I specify the -d flag, up2date should download the packages (which I can 
later install by hand, after massaging the filesystem into a state to where the 
update will take).  Instead, it fails.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cram /usr to near capacity
2. up2date -d somepackages

Actual Results:  # /usr/sbin/up2date -d glibc glibc-common
[ snip ]
RPM package conflict error.  The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
installing package glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9 needs 22MB on the /usr filesystem

Expected Results:  packages should be in /var/spool/up2date (which I confirmed 
has free space)

Yup. Up2date is designed to only let you download packages you
can install (aka, you have space for, no unsolved deps, don't
conflict with other packages, etc)
