yum-ovl(1) User Manual yum-ovl(1)
yum-ovl - Performs an initial copy-up of yum(8) package database.
-d debug-level If debug level is 2 and more, print out the number of files copied up from the lower layer
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.
