NAME         top

       yum-ovl - Performs an initial copy-up of yum(8) package database.

OPTIONS         top

       -d debug-level If debug level is 2 and more, print out the number of
       files copied up from the lower layer

DESCRIPTION         top

       Opening a file on OverlayFS in read-only mode causes the file from
       lower layer to be opened, then later on, if the same file is opened
       in write mode, a copy-up into the upper    layer    takes    place,
       resulting into a new file being opened.
       Since yum(8) needs to open the RPMdb first read-only, and then
       also with write access, we need to copy-up the files beforehand to
       make sure that the access is consistent.
