Connections to download.opensuse.org affecting openQA CI and o3
I'm observing more issues with download.opensuse.org and I need something I can refer to. Regardless of wether it's an issue on our end or somewhere else.
On some GHA jobs:
Error: ing: libsndfile1-1.0.31-2.2.x86_64.rpm [error] Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/x86_64/libsndfile1-1.0.31-2.2.x86_64.rpm': Abort, retry, ignore?

On some openQA tests on o3:

I just looked into https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/actions/workflows/ci_extended.yml and this problem started apparently on December 13.
Just that we usually don't see it in pull requests because it is only executed on push events, where only the repo admin(s) get a notification.

TL;DR: Might be a curl regression, investigation is ongoing. Suggested workaround is to use dnf with a high number of retries configured replacing zypper.

- Related to action #104619: openqa_from_containers needs adapted post_fail_hook (was: tests fails due to openSUSE mirror problems with can't locate Mojo/Base.pm in INC in script/client) added
#5 Updated by okurz over 1 year ago
https://github.com/openSUSE/zypper/issues/399#issuecomment-1010465696 confirms that the main issue seems to be a curl regression or change of behaviour.
#6 Updated by okurz about 1 year ago
- Status changed from Blocked to Resolved
mirror infrastructure has improved since then so currently less or no problems. This can re-appear anytime as zypper is still mediocre at handling retries, see the related issues on github.
