Problem downloading yum-downloadonly plugin


Hello all.

I am having a problem downloading the yum-downloadonly plugin. I have the plugin installed and it works when downloading only other RPMs.

The command I am using (as root) is:
yum install yum-downloadonly --downloadonly --downloaddir=/downloads

When I do this, yum sets the downloadonly flag but then reports back that I have the most recent version already installed and does not download the RPM.

This is not what I want it to do, I want it to actually download the RPM.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!
~Robert

QUOTE : "" To download a package that has been installed,
please use yumdownloader instead. ""


And please use the command ' man yumdownloader '
for more details.
