Summary0007982: yum reinstall kernel fails to find any packages
DescriptionRunning yum reinstall kernel-* with a valid kernel package name results in yum not finding any package to install. Have confirmed that the package exists on the mirror I'm using, and have tried a yum clean all. I can confirm that the same command runs properly on RHEL7 (specifically, it finds the package to reinstall, but I did not attempt to do so).
Steps To Reproduce1) rpm -qa kernel\*
2) Select one of the kernel packages and run: yum reinstall kernel-3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64 (or whatever version you want)
3) yum eventually ends with "Error: Nothing to do"
