The -C option to both yum and dnf means to only use the cache. If you
want to force it to not use the cache, then you need to add the
--refresh option to dnf.
Sure. But the point of my previous email was that if you run
"makecache", you then want to run with "-C" in order not to refresh
the cache that you've just updated.
