Description Franklin Adams 2013-06-10 12:23:09 EDT
Description of problem: DNF failed to recognize that there was an update to opencv, while both KDE's Apper as well as yum had no issue seeing it, and yum had no problem installing it. I did not attempt to install through Apper. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dnf 0.2.23 and opencv 2.4.5

How reproducible: Uncertain. Until new packages are released I have no means of testing dnf against yum and Apper further. The behavior I'm reporting was reproducible despite a Kernel Sync, Package Sync, and repeated attempts to manually update the package using the command "dnf upgrade opencv". 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a Console as a regular user or log in under console mode
2.Elevate to super-user using su command and "-" switch, enter password
3.Attempt to run dnf using "dnf update" or "dnf check-update"
4.dnf will return a message stating "Nothing to do"
5.Open Apper or run "yum update"
6. Apper and yum will see the update, install it and install any dependencies

Actual results:
dnf neither sees nor installs the update

Expected results:
dnf should install the updated package

Additional info:
Again, both Apper and Yum handled this with no issue, dnf however didn't recognize the update existing at all.

Hi, can you paste the output of

'yum -assumeno update'

in this case?

Also does the problem still persist now when over a week has passed and DNF has newer metadata available?

Comment 2 Franklin Adams 2013-06-22 16:26:35 EDT

In the next comment ill past the output of that command or the benefit of clarity.  

I have no idea if the problem persisted, as I wound up forcing yum to update it, even pointing dnf at the opencv package and telling it to update just that package (using dnf update opencv) would return the "nothing to do" message. When I did the same command with yum (yum update opencv).

Also, my apologies for the late reply, I was in the field training all week. I tend to be much faster.

Comment 4 Ales Kozumplik 2013-06-24 03:56:55 EDT
Ah, sorry, the command should be, as root:

yum --assumeno update

Can you please run it again?
Comment 5 Ales Kozumplik 2013-06-24 04:04:26 EDT
Scratch comment 4. Now I see that you say in comment 2 that you already forced the update through Yum. That means it would be hard to debug this now and your DNF version is too old to support the solver debugging anyway. I am going to close this now but if you happen to run into the same bug again, hopefully with DNF version > 0.3.5, please reopen and attach the output of:

dnf --best --debugsolver upgrade opencv

Thank you.
Comment 6 Franklin Adams 2013-06-25 00:53:08 EDT
Yes Sir, no problem at all. 

I plan on staying Fedora 18 for about a month or so (give or take) after the Fedora 19 release on 2 July on my bare metal while I test fc19 on a VM to make sure a certain piece of hardware I have to use works with no issues. That being said, if I do run across something like this again on this version I'll be sure to reopen it. 

V/R (Very respectfully, in case you've never seen that before)
