The yum updateinfo commands now respect skip_if_unavailable option

If a repository was configured with the skip_if_unavailable=1 option, the yum commands operating on the updateinfo metadata, such as yum updateinfo or yum check-update --security, did not work correctly. Consequently, yum terminated with an error instead of skipping the repository. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed to respect the skip_if_unavailable option. As a result, the affected yum commands now skip the unavailable repository as expected under the described circumstances. (BZ#1528608)
