This appears very much broken. I just tried to install a container with
the following command line:

yum -y  \
    --setopt=tsflags=nodocs \
    --setopt=keepcache=0 \
    --installroot=/home/lennart/minimal/install \
    --nogpg \
    --releasever=18 \
    '--disablerepo=*' \
    --enablerepo=fedora \
    install systemd passwd openssh-server rpm

And this fails when installing gawk with:
