Description alan.dennis 2016-07-29 09:38:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Exactly the same as bug 993567 - --downloadonly renaming rpm *inside* local repo hence corrupting repo.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
exactly as bug 993567

Actual results:
rpm being downloaded gets renamed by removing .noarch.rpm from filename.

Expected results:
yum --downloadonly should not corrupt the local repository by renaming rpms.

Additional info:
It looks as though this only started happening following an upgrade from yum-3.2.29-73.el6 to yum-3.2.29-75.el6_8.

As in the report for bug 993567, this was happening in a cron job and has taken a significant amount of time to track down!

Makes me think about a similar issue with "file://" repositories :

Right now the situation is like this :

Centos 6.7 and prior : safe to use yumdownloader, repotrack, yum --downloadonly
Centos 6.8 : Use repotrack for downloading, --downloadonly broken
Centos 7 and further : use yumdownloader or yum --downloadonly, repotrack is broken
