Description

I'm setting the following in the update.yaml file

ignore:
  - "*deleted.rules" 
  - "*pop3.rules" 

I get the loading message:

26/2/2019 -- 13:46:04 - <Debug> -- This is suricata-update version 1.0.3 (rev: None); Python: 2.7.15rc1 (default, Nov 12 2018, 14:31:15) - [GCC 7.3.0]
26/2/2019 -- 13:46:04 - <Info> -- Loading /opt/suricata/etc/suricata/update.yaml

But the files do not get ignored. It seems that the code loading command line parameters override previous settings even when no parameters are given.
The problem seems to be that the default for the --ignore flag is "[]" and not "None"

Changing line 182 in config.py file seems to solve the issue.

From:

        elif getattr(args, arg) is not None:

To:

        elif getattr(args, arg) not in [ None, [] ]:
