Re: Help on reproducing potential yum bug

The bug report is not about successful transcations (ie) package being

the packages from cache while it shouldnt.


Perhaps you misread the bug report. It says that after an error yum
keeps the cache, but then when performing a subsequent successful
operation (ie just upgrading a single package) all the packages and
headers (not just from that single package) are deleted.

From the bug report:
1. yum update (you download lot of updates e.g. 500MB), on transaction test you
end up with some kind of error or you cancel the operation. Yum keeps the cache.
2. You decide at least to update kernel. Using yum update kernel wipes complete
cache as this operation was successful.
