If there a way to download and install/update the packages from a selected bodhi update? I have searched in the dnf command and plugins, and in the bodhi command, and did not found an easy solution.

Precision: if the bodhi update has a security advisory ID, that ID can be used to install it, but what if the update is not security-related?

dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing  upgrade --advisory FEDORA-2017-bd24b5ae3f

works on F26+ i.e. only with dnf2 , more references here [1]

That answer is a good one if the bodhi update has already made its way to update-testing, and if there is an associated security advisory ID.

But my question still remains for update that are not related to security.

What it this returns output such as "No security updates needed, but 144 updates available", do I still have to use the method mentioned below?

I have the same issue:

$ sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing --advisory=FEDORA-2018-a9e88bd90c update
Last metadata expiration check: 0:29:06 ago on Fri Mar  9 10:57:10 2018.
No security updates needed, but 252 updates available
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

How to make DNF include non-security updates?

dnf update includes all packages that have been pushed to Fedora's update repository, regardless of the nature of the update (security, bug fix, enhancement, ...).

Every update has an ID, no matter if security related or not.

You can simply use that ID (--updateid) to download a build/package(s) from bodhi.


bodhi updates download --updateid FEDORA-2018-6c0aeafdfa

You can do that using a combination of the bodhi client (bodhi-client) and dnf. First download the package from bodhi using bodhi-client, then use dnf to install the package:

The following is an example that I took from a recent Fedora Magazine article on KRACK.

bodhi updates download --builds wpa_supplicant-2.6-11.fc26
dnf update ./wpa_supplicant*.rpm

where wpa_supplicant... can be replaced with any other package from bodhi. It should work with any bodhi package that is pending, meaning not yet in testing.

You need to install bodhi-client first, if not yet installed

sudo dnf install bodhi-client

you also have koji download-build package-evr that may help you

for example:

koji download-build -a x86_64 po-debconf-1.0.16-8.nmu3.fc24
