Hi Sven, Hi Jörg,

thank you very much for your help.

Adding pkgdb as Sven suggested turned out to fix my problem.

I managed to build a (scripted) solution using docker containers and
verified correct operation on fedora:25. I have placed the code on, which I hope to extend to
different Linuxes and parallel operation with multiple docker
containers in the near future.

Many thanks, cheers,
