Description Chris Siebenmann 2016-07-19 16:07:16 UTC
Description of problem:

If you install the DNF 'local' plugin and then fix bug 1236747 by manually
mkdir'ing /var/lib/dnf/plugins/local, DNF will now save copies of your RPMs
as you want but most DNF operations will report the error:

    Failed to synchronize cache for repo '_dnf_local', disabling.

This is essentially the Fedora 24 version of bug 1209862, which has just been
closed as EOL on Fedora 22.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install python3-dnf-plugins-extras-local
2. mkdir /var/lib/dnf/plugins/local
3. dnf install <some package>

Actual results:

dnf reports:

    Failed to synchronize cache for repo '_dnf_local', disabling.

Expected results:

dnf doesn't report any errors or warnings.

Additional info:

Running 'createrepo_c /var/lib/dnf/plugins/local' appears to fix the
problem but I have no idea what side effects it has.

Perhaps this will be fixed with the proper fix to bug 1236747, but
I have no idea how this stuff is supposed to be done and this whole
area has been neglected for a year. I'm refiling this bug so that it
doesn't get forgotten; the local plugin is important since Fedora update
packages do periodically have bugs and the repos purge old versions
quite fast.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
