[epic] test incompletes after failing in GRU download task on "Inactivity timeout" with no logs
openQA test in scenario obs-Unstable-Appliance-x86_64-obs_appliance@64bit-4G incompletes after failing in
Gru job failed Reason: asset download: download of http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/OBS:/Server:/Unstable/images/obs-server.x86_64-2.10.51-qcow2-Build2.438.qcow2 to /var/lib/openqa/share/factory/hdd/obs-server.x86_64-2.10.51-qcow2-Build2.438.qcow2 failed: connection error: Inactivity timeout at /usr/share/openqa/script/../lib/OpenQA/Task/Asset/Download.pm line 74.
ending the complete job in "incomplete".
Hard, seems to be related to temporary network problems.
- AC1: GRU download retries automatically on temporary network problems
- AC2: The way we provide feedback to users is comparable for GRU download failures as well as other incompletes with known reasons
I realized the quite different approach for user feedback on GRU download jobs vs. other incompletes with mkittler already on 2020-01-21. Retry is just one part of it. Maybe the way how GRU download jobs provide details but still incomplete is the way to go?
Always latest result in this scenario: latest

Might be interesting to combine the cache service and gru download code into a shared module, and get retry support that way. Both do pretty much the same thing. It's a bit of upfront work, but later on we'd benefit from being able to test the various special cases for downloads in one place. And bugfixes would automatically apply to both.
