Give it a break. Distributions have their strengths and weaknesses,
otherwise we'd all use the One Distro to Rule Them All.

Did you do a recursive copy? The repodata (repository data)
is a package manager-independent way of listing packages,
their information, and their dependencies. It is in a directory
named "repodata". Repodata is created using the createrepo command.
This is in the "createrepo" package in almost all distros.
