#6741 In osbs dnf fails to download metadata for a hour or two window after updates pushes finish
Closed: Will Not/Can Not fix 2 years ago by cverna. Opened 3 years ago by cverna.

I have experienced dnf failing to sync the repo metadata.

Here are thoughts from patrick about it

<puiterwijk> That happens just after pushes probably. Or, to be more exact: between the time
when the master mirrors are updated with new contents and the time that mirrorlist starts
serving the new checksums.
<puiterwijk> Because at that time, the master mirrors do not have the checksums that mirrorlist > is sending, so the master mirror is regarded as outdated

Note: this is inside the OpenShift build System.
That uses the standard updates repo config, but can't fall back to secondary mirrors.

Also, as noted on IRC, I have some ideas on how to fix that, but will look at that next week.

This does not seems to happen that often anymore. Let's close for now and reopen if we witness the problem again.
