Error description

  • [16.0.0.2] IM modify_add flow failed to install liberty
    javaee7 addon when Installation Manager option 'save files
    for rollback' is not selected during past install
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    Installation Manager GUI
    - install Installation ManagerIM Base offering
    - custom install option by not selecting any asset
    - after installed, go to modify wizard
    - select add asset
    - select Javaee7 and WebProfile7 bundles to install
    - failed
    
    Caused of the issue is found.
    During modify_add flow, it expects to get access to the
    embedded zip files from IMShared directory. If user doesn't
    select Installation ManagerIM's option to store the files,
    the files are not copied into IMShared directory and as a
    result it fails in this case. During modify, it should get
    embedded repo files from the offering repository.
    
    During install, the issue doesn't occur as embedded zip
    files are temporarily copied into IMShared directory if user
    doesn't select Installation Manager's option to store the
    file.
