## Observation 

 openQA test in scenario openqa-Tumbleweed-dev-x86_64-openqa_install+publish@64bit-2G fails in 

 ## Test suite description 
 Maintainer: Test for installation of openQA itself. To be used with "openqa" distri. Publishes an qcow2 image including the openQA installation ready to run as an appliance. 

 ## Reproducible 

 Fails since (at least) Build [:TW.19791]( (current job) 

 ## Expected result 

 Last good: [:TW.19790]( (or more recent) 

 ## Further details 

 Always latest result in this scenario: [latest]( 

 I've seen this happening three times now. 

 fetchneedles is called, and during git clone os-autoinst-istri-opensuse it fails with `fatal: fetch-pack: invalid index-pack output`. 

 ## Suggestions 
 - Maybe the curl command took a long time due to slowdowns on either GitHub or the o3 network 
 - Consider changing the test inside the test to not use distri-opensuse but a different repo (to avoid the large clone) i.e. using -example instead 
 - Re-try the fetchneedles command 
 - Probably DON'T retry inside the fetchneedles command since that is typically run in a cron job 
 - Confirm with Oli if anyone might be using the resulting qcow2 image including the needles
