Haven't looked fully into this yet, but the anaconda packaging log for
the Alpha RC4 Workstation live image compose:
shows abrt-desktop initially being selected for install, but not
actually being installed. That suggests there was some kind of
dependency issue and dnf just left it out of the transaction instead of
complaining / aborting / whatever (I'm not sure if this is new or old
Poking around on this, some background in:
After that bug, I think dnf was made to error out if a *mandatory*
package from a selected group cannot be installed, but not if a
*default* package from a selected group cannot be installed.
A similar case I came across recently (outside of anaconda).
I *think* comps entries with no explicit 'type' default to being
treated as 'default', not 'mandatory', and dnf is considering it to be
OK if a 'default' group package cannot be installed. After looking at
the references, I'm pretty sure this is not how yum behaved. I don't
know offhand why this behaviour was changed in dnf.
