Summary0014089: Manpage is incorrect for CentOS 7
Descriptionyum(8) states the "--security" flag can be used to scope updates to those marked as security updates. However, based on https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=64892, the CentOS yum repos lack the necessary information to support this. While the feature may work for other repos, it does not work at all for CentOS.
Steps To Reproduceman yum
[read]
[attempt to use "--security" to select security-only updates]
Additional InformationA patch to the manpage is attached.
