Delta RPMs disabled because /usr/bin/applydeltarpm not installed.
What is delta RPM (DRPM) and how does it differ from RPM? How do I fix this issue on a CentOS or RHEL 7 server/desktop?
Delta rpms (DRMS) created to save bandwidth and speed up download patches and rpm packages from the Internet. With DRMS, you download only minor changes instead of grabbing full packages. In other words, only changes (updates) between the installed and new packages are downloads. This page explains how to enable and install deltarpm suppor for RHEL 6/7 and CentOS 6/7.
From the SUSE page:
Delta RPM packages contain the difference between an old and a new version of an RPM package. Applying a delta RPM on an old RPM results in the complete new RPM. It is not necessary to have a copy of the old RPM, because a delta RPM can also work with an installed RPM. The delta RPM packages are even smaller in size than patch RPMs, which is an advantage when transferring update packages over the Internet. The drawback is that update operations with delta RPMs involved consume considerably more CPU cycles than plain or patch RPMs.
