Transaction Summary
Install  154 Packages

Total download size: 97 M
Installed size: 306 M
Is this ok [y/N]: 

The i686 universe is not installed if you run:
    dnf install okular --exclude='*.86_64'

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2016-04-09 01:16:50 UTC
I'm pretty sure this isn't expected behavior, re-assigning to dnf for advice/comment

also, the --exclude above should be --exclude=*.i686

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2016-04-09 22:15:25 UTC
Hrm, I hit the same thing on a pure 'dnf update' operation today,

I suspect it may have to do with recently-introduced rich/soft dependencies in some qt/kde related packages.

Yep, seems so,

sudo dnf update  --exclude=kde-platform-plugin

makes it work as expected.

So, kde-platform-plugin includes:

Supplements: (kde-runtime and plasma-workspace)

What I have currently installed:

$ rpm -q kde-runtime plasma-workspace kde-platform-plugin

My update transaction tries to pull in a newer plasma-workspace, but I do *not* expect it to want to pull in kde-platform-plugin.i686 on a x86_64 system.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2016-04-09 22:16:34 UTC
Would something like this work better?

Supplements: (kde-runtime%{?_isa} and plasma-workspace%{?_isa})

I suspect not, since those are just virtual Provides and not real packages.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2016-04-09 22:36:55 UTC
If dnf devs can confirm this is expected behavior and not a bug, then we can consider other options.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2016-04-09 22:39:57 UTC
adjusting Summary to match my findings, I'll be submitting this as a f24 blocker

Comment 6 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2016-04-09 22:43:17 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 24-final by Fedora user rdieter using the blocker tracking app because:

 Unsure if there's a specific criterion that covers this but... due to how dnf resolves (soft) Supplements: dependencies, it will pull in *all* providers, including multilib ones.  My own expectation is that only native arch packages should get installed in this case.

Comment 7 Igor Gnatenko 2016-04-11 11:16:45 UTC
Bug 1325666 looks very similar.

Comment 8 Steven Haigh 2016-04-11 11:19:41 UTC
As a current workaround, I have added the following to each enabled repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo:

Although this isn't a great idea - I've added it here to assist others that have the same problem and need a workaround.

This solved the problem of pulling in a ton of i686 updates today via a 'dnf -y update' on F24A.

Comment 9 Kamil Páral 2016-04-11 16:41:25 UTC
Discussed at today's blocker review meeting [1]. Voted as AcceptedBlocker (Final) AcceptedFreezeException (Beta) - details are not nailed down yet, but installing a ton of multilib packages on system update is considered a conditional violation of "The installed system must be able to download and install updates with the default console package manager." and accepted as a Final blocker and Beta freeze exception for now. decision may be changed based on later info


Comment 10 Tomas Toth 2016-04-11 17:44:26 UTC
I hit the same/similar issue on my F24 KDE x86_64 (alpha) in VM with dnf update.

The --exclude=*.i686 workaround worked.

I have the debugdata stored from both:
dnf update --debugsolver
dnf update --debugsolver --exclude=*.i686

Let me know if you need them.

Comment 11 Fedora Update System 2016-04-12 00:44:13 UTC
kdelibs-4.14.18-3.fc24 kde-workspace-4.11.22-10.fc24 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 24.

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2016-04-12 00:46:13 UTC
The aforementioned update strictly doesn't fix this, is only really a workaround, but avoiding the use of the problematic Supplements: tag

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2016-04-12 10:52:09 UTC
kde-workspace-4.11.22-10.fc24, kdelibs-4.14.18-3.fc24 has been pushed to the Fedora 24 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 14 Steven Haigh 2016-04-12 11:01:30 UTC
This probably shouldn't go to ON_QA for a band-aid workaround....

Sadly, I can't mark it as anything but closed though....

Comment 15 Fedora Update System 2016-04-15 21:32:55 UTC
kde-workspace-4.11.22-10.fc24, kdelibs-4.14.18-3.fc24 has been pushed to the Fedora 24 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 16 Kamil Páral 2016-05-09 16:51:12 UTC
Hello DNF team, is there any progress on this? We're trying to evaluate status of F24 blocker bugs. Thanks.

Comment 17 Kamil Páral 2016-05-17 10:01:00 UTC
I talked to jsilhan on IRC and they are now aware of this. Hopefully this being a blocker will increase its priority. Also Michael Schroeder replied and said it's a bug in libsolv and that he's going to fix it upstream.

Comment 18 Fedora Update System 2016-05-17 12:05:53 UTC

Comment 19 Fedora Update System 2016-05-17 12:06:47 UTC
libsolv-0.6.20-2.fc24 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 24.

Comment 20 Kamil Páral 2016-05-17 13:57:52 UTC
I'm not sure how to test this. I tried to install kde-workspace-4.11.22-9.fc24 (the old version with Supplements), but it did not try to pull in any i686 deps.

Rex, could you please either verify this or help me figure out how to do it? Thanks.

Comment 21 Rex Dieter 2016-05-17 14:40:08 UTC
It's not trivial to test, you need some packages that are both multilib'd and use Supplements.  kdelibs/kde-workspace were changed to not use Supplements to avoid this bug. see comment #15

I suppose i can try to put some supplements back into some test packages and create a custom repo that includes both arches and see.  (no promises when I'll be able to do that, I've several other important tasks to work on in the foreseeable future)

Can't we reuse the older kdelibs/kde-workspace packages to verify this? They're still in koji. I tried it, but don't know how exactly to trigger the original issue. Maybe I need to have something installed that I don't.

Comment 25 Michal Jaegermann 2016-05-18 13:54:07 UTC
It could be that bug 1320755 is another manifestation of the same issue (in a rawhide context).  That bug has attached to it some debugging data which were requested.

Comment 26 Rex Dieter 2016-05-18 13:59:04 UTC
Yes, it appears bug #1320755 is (essentially) a dup of this one, and reported before the workaround(s) landed in comment #15, I'll mark it as such
