[Solved] Strange repository issue with DNF

Postby duskmourn » Jan 8th, '20, 16:30

Whenever I try to update or install a package using DNF, I'm given this.

Code: Select all
[root@navi ~]# dnf install firefox

Package firefox-68.3.0-1.mga8.x86_64 is already installed.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!


I just used Firefox as an example as I already have it installed. But where are these non existent repos coming from? One of them, "cauldron-updates-x86_64" isn't even an actual repository.

DNF seems to work perfectly fine besides this, it's just annoying. Any ideas what could've caused this or how to fix it?

Please show the output of

Code: Select all
# dnf repolist


It should look like this in a working dnf environment

Code: Select all
[root@mga8-cauldron ~]# dnf repolist
/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/bs4/element.py:15: UserWarning: The soupsieve package is not installed. CSS selectors cannot be used.
  warnings.warn(

repo id                                                                          repo name
cauldron-x86_64                                                                  Mageia Cauldron - x86_64
cauldron-x86_64-nonfree                                                          Mageia Cauldron - x86_64 - Nonfree
cauldron-x86_64-tainted                                                          Mageia Cauldron - x86_64 - Tainted
[root@mga8-cauldron ~]#


Note that I am only using x86_64 repos.

Here's the output of dnf repolist

Code: Select all
[root@navi ~]# dnf repolist
repo id                                                                                                         repo name

cauldron-x86_64                                                                                           Mageia Cauldron - x86_64
copr:copr.fedorainfracloud.org:konimex:neofetch                                             Copr repo for neofetch owned by konimex
mageia-x86_64                                                                                             Mageia 8 - x86_64
updates-x86_64                                                                                            Mageia 8 - x86_64 - Updates


I do have the 32 bit repos enabled, but it doesn't seem to show up here for some reason. And yes, the COPR repo is intended for Cauldron.

You see all the possiblilities with

Code: Select all
# dnf repolist --all


Now you can enable or disable any repo by

Code: Select all
# dnf config-manager --set-enabled <repo-name>  ...
# dnf config-manager --set-disabled <repo-name> ...


dnfdragora has also a menu item to configure the repos. The updates repos are empty in Cauldron by default. Of course, dnf commands should also work with empty repos. I see this as a minor issue.

Disabling "cauldron-updates-x86_64", "mageia-x86_64", and "updates-x86_64" seems to have fixed it, sorry for the trouble.
