Description Norman Weathers 2013-05-20 13:06:07 UTC
Description of problem:
While trying dnf to install a set of packages, I noticed during the installation that DNF tried to erase the packages from the Media where the packages were located.  If I had this shared media root writable, it would have deleted several packages from my synced repository.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a local repository for Fedora
2. use dnf to install a new package
3. Between installation and verify, see the Cannot remove /....rpm

Actual results:
If the files would have been mounted rw, they may have been deleted.

Expected results:
Media listed as file:/// for yum repos are often shared filesystems (NFS, etc), dnf should not try and delete those files.

Additional info:
Here is the output from the dnf installation:
