DNF failed to synchronize cache for repo

asked 2014-09-29 06:21:04 -0600

DNF doesn't seem to play nice with a local repo created by yum-plugin-local

Failed to synchronize cache for repo '_local' from '[u'file:/home/$USER/Documents/Software/local']': Cannot prepare internal mirrorlist: realpath(file:/home/$USER/Documents/Software/local) error: No such file or directory, disabling.

I see you already commented on correct bug. Maybe wait for developers to find time to write this plugin or discuss this issue on Freenode server irc channel #yum

@pnemade I am not sure if that is a correct bug. I am not asking for yum-plugin-local support. I can extrapolate that dnf might fail with createrepo too which I would hope something that is posed to take over yum shouldn't.

That's a hack. I would rather file a bug.

Have you filed a bug report?

@mether I plan to. There is a yum-plugin-local bug . I have made the comment but it is marked low. So I am not sure if I should file another bug or let developers take their time.
