Description Stas Sergeev 2017-11-19 14:54:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Running "sudo rpmconf -c" crashes with errors
like this:
Delete these files (Y/n): 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sbin/rpmconf", line 80, in <module>
  File "/sbin/rpmconf", line 71, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/rpmconf/", line 98, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/rpmconf/", line 471, in _clean_orphan
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/rpmconf/", line 234, in _remove
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/pl/'

I think those rpmnew files were removed
by hands, and it is expecting them to be
present, instead of just check.
With every new start, it crashes with a
different file (not repeating the previous
ones), so eventually, with multiple starts,
it is possible to get to a success.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove some rpmnew file (maybe! not sure if this is the cause)
2. sudo rpmconf -c

Actual results:

Expected results:
No errors, maybe a warning.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 08:10:03 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-29 11:35:50 UTC
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
