#1228 `copr build omajid/source-build src.rpm` fails with "Request is not in JSON format"
Closed: Fixed a month ago by praiskup. Opened 4 months ago by omajid.

$ rpm -q copr-cli python3-copr
copr-cli-1.84-1.fc31.noarch
python3-copr-1.100-1.fc31.noarch

I regenerated the credentials earlier today. I know they are valid because this works:

copr modify omajid/source-build --description '**DO NOT USE**'

But this always fails:

$ copr-cli build omajid/source-build /home/omajid/fedora-git/source-build-reference-packages/source-build-reference-packages-0.1-1.fc31.src.rpm
Uploading package /home/omajid/fedora-git/source-build-reference-packages/source-build-reference-packages-0.1-1.fc31.src.rpm
 |################################| 457.7 MB 1.3 MB/s eta 0:00:00Request is not in JSON format, there is probably a bug in the API code.

The error says "Request is not in JSON format", which I have no idea what that means.

I have tried different variants without any luck either:

$ copr-cli build omajid/source-build source-build-reference-packages-0.1-1.fc31.src.rpm
$ copr-cli build source-build source-build-reference-packages-0.1-1.fc31.src.rpm

I tried with --debug, renaming the package and using a new copr repo:

Request is not in JSON format, there is probably a bug in the API code.

I stripped out most of the contents of the "source archive" to get it to become much smaller. That seems to make it work:

Is there a size restriction here? Can that restriction be made more lax? And can the error messages be improved?

I'm not aware of any restriction. There's also somewhat duplicate #1196,
@schlupov is looking at both of them.

@schlupov, now I rememberred that we don't store the uploaded src.rpm files in /tmp, but in /var/lib/copr/data/srpm_storage, if that helps with reproducing the issue.

TimeOut for the post request has been raised so you should be able to use copr with such a big src.rpm.

I dont think this has been fixed. I just tried it right now:

$ copr-cli --version
copr version 1.85

I'm not sure right now where might be the problem, I will let you know once I will know more. I'm able to reproduce this issue with very big src.rpm, over 1.8 GB. I can upload smaller src.rpm and start a new build.

My recommendation, for now, would be to make src.rpm smaller or you can try some better internet connectivity.

As reported here, this still happens.

I tried it today and can reproduce it almost every other time with a 35MB srpm, both on production and on staging (well, it's more rare on staging than on production). I tried to debug it with no luck.

Hello, I have the same issue.
The SRPM I upload has ~70-100MB and the success rate it about 1/3.
The upload time is over a minute.

Fedora 30, "copr version 1.86", "copr-cli-1.86-1.fc30.noarch"

I've been unable to build recent GCC snapshots for months due to this.

I meet the same problem with some "big" package.
Via the COPR web interface, the server always hangs.
Via copr-cli, I've got the "JSON" error message.
The only way to get the package uploaded was to put the package on a personnal server and send the URL on the COPR Web interface ...

I've done several updates in ansible.git today to make the httpd configuration
more straight forward, and what fixed this problem is probably this.

Tested by:

15:30:22 /tmp$ copr build ping test.src.rpm
Uploading package test.src.rpm

^C

So upload taking 23 minutes, 1.5G, finished just fine. I hope it is fixed, so closing.
Thanks for the reports, and sorry for inconvenience.
