Description Germano Massullo 2014-01-31 11:08:39 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to install RPM file downloaded from "Lightworks For Linux", by doing
# dnf install lwks-11.5-amd64.rpm
but I obtained error

Problem with repo 'steam': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried, disabling.
Errore: Nothing to do.

DNF should not abort installation if there are troubles on 3rd party mirror. In this case the repo is the well known

Finally I used yum and the package has been installed without problems.

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

Hi, the error you see is not what stopped the installation as the repo was disabled thanks to its 'skip_if_unavailable=1' setting.

This is only another exhibition of the bug 1056400.
