#8169 f31 updates-testing repo incorrect path
Closed: Fixed 2 months ago by adrian. Opened 2 months ago by menantea.

There is an entry in fedora-updates-testing.repo for f31 referencing https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=updates-testing-f31&arch=ppc64le, mirrormanager seems pointing on http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/updates/testing/31/Everything/ppc64le/Packages/os/repodata/ but this path does not exists.
The existing one is https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/updates/testing/31/Everything/ppc64le/repodata

On a fresh install with fedora-31-Server-dvd-iso-ppc64le-BuildFedora-31-20190903.n.0,
when I do a cmd like "dnf module list" it trigs problems like:
Fedora Modular 31 - ppc64le
Fedora Modular 31 - ppc64le - Updates
Fedora Modular 31 - ppc64le - Test Updates
Fedora 31 - ppc64le - Test Updates
Failed to download metadata for repo 'updates-testing'
Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'updates-testing'

With in the dnf.log:

Unfortunately this happens a lot during the last few releases. This always happens when an empty/unused repodata directory is pushed to the mirrors and which is then picked up by MirrorManager. MirrorManager still believes that a repodata directory only exists once per repository tree and that it never changes. It would be nice if this would not happen anymore, but this one just disappeared.

I fixed it manually in the database. In probably two hours it should be also fixed for you.

Please let us know if you encounter any more problems.
