Description Jetchko Jekov 2016-07-15 09:15:45 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to exclude specific version of package from repository. but DNF doesn't respect 'exclude=<versioned package spec>' in .repo files. 

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

How reproducible: 

Steps to Reproduce:
set exclude=<package spec with ver> in some repo file
my current example: exclude=kf5-plasma-5.24.0-1.fc24 (currently broken in testing) which goes into /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates-testing.repo

execute relevant dnf update command
in my case
dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing  update

Actual results:
kf5-plasma-5.24.0-1.fc24 show as available update

Expected results:
kf5-plasma-5.24.0-1.fc24 MUST not be available as update

Additional info:

If I put same exclude line as a global setting in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf it is respected.

Using only package name (exclude=kde-plasma) in .repo file works as expected -> the package doesn't show as available update.

We'll take a look

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

Comment 3 Jaroslav Mracek 2016-09-07 17:13:56 UTC
Please, can you try dnf-2.0 from copt repo. Just use command ``dnf copr enable rpmsoftwaremanagement/dnf-nightly`` and then upgrade dnf to version 2.0. According to my investigation, the problem is solve in this upstream version.

Comment 4 Jaroslav Mracek 2016-09-08 18:08:58 UTC
Probably it will be better to close the bug report but if you will experience the reported problem with dnf-2.0, please don't hesitate to reopen it and provide please fresh data.
