Description Christian Stadelmann 2017-11-23 12:54:11 UTC
Description of problem:
When running `dnf debuginfo-install [packagename]` for a package which does not exist, there is no warning or error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run `dnf debuginfo-install foo` or `dnf debuginfo-install xorg-x11-server-xwayland`
2. watch output

Actual results:
No warning. DNF exits with "nothing to do" message.

Expected results:
Give a warning that the package does not exist. This is the default behavior without debuginfo-install, i.e. `dnf install foo` or `dnf install xorg-x11-server-xwayland`.

Additional info:
Fixing this issue would help detecting typos such as "xorg-x11-server-xwayland" instead of "xorg-x11-server-Xwayland".
