by this example we can install the errata

yum update --advisory=RHBA-2016:0694

but is it possible just to download the errata to local folder?

we just want to download the rpm's , without to install them

as all know we can do it also from redhat site , but I want to use yum for download errata - is it possible

please advice


From yum --help:

--downloadonly        don't update, just download
--downloaddir=DLDIR   specifies an alternate directory to store packages

    Your question does not show any research effort at all. You could have typed yum --help yourself. – Gerald Schneider Mar 13 at 7:48
