|Summary||0017920: [repositoryid] for PowerTools has been changed from "PowerTools" to "powertools"|
|Description||package: centos-linux-repos |
Latest update changed the [repositoryid] section of the PowerTools repo breaking the official way how to enable the repo:
"dnf config-manager --set-enabled 'PowerTools'" which broke our gitlab pipelines: https://gitlab.com/libvirt/libvirt/-/jobs/896691981
I can understand the change to be consistent with the other repos, but this was arguably an undesirable change. It's also not mentioned in the Changelog, and also not present here: https://git.centos.org/rpms/centos-release/blob/c8/f/SOURCES/CentOS-PowerTools.repo
If this is not a bug, then I'd like to know the rationale for this change.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. install CentOS 8|
2. install the config-manager plugin for dnf
3. issue 'dnf config-manager --set-enabled "PowerTools"'
"Error: No matching repo to modify: PowerTools."
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I can reproduce the issue on the CentOS-8-GenericCloud-8.3.2011-20201204.2.x86_64.qcow2 image.
This completely breaks our pipeline, please revert to the old naming. This is probably a typo or an oversight.
I can reproduce the issue on the CentOS-8.2.2004-x86_64-boot.iso
This also completely breaks our pipeline and my installs are stuck
|All my CI jobs across multiple services have failed with "No matching repo to modify: PowerTools" -- I really hope this was a really early April fools joke...|
|This is an intentional change, mentioned in the release notes: https://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS8.2011#Yum_repo_file_and_repoid_changes|
