Errors when synchronizing from a mirror list
When synchronizing the EPEL repo from http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/ to my local pulp server, there was at least one server with connectivity problems. This caused several packages not to download and the subsequent publish process failed. The http repo would only list RPMs up to the failed package. (i.e. if it failed on the apbs-tools rpm, then none of the packages which fell alphabetically after that were published.) If a reliable site is chosen (i.e. kernel.org), the entire repository downloads and publishes without error.
The command used to create the repo that was failing:
pulp-admin rpm repo update --repo-id=centos7-x86_64_epel --display-name="Centos7 - EPEL" --feed=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/ --validate=true
As I mentioned, changing the feed to: --feed=http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora-epel/7/x86_64/
Fixed the problem.
/var/log/messages did reflect problems with some of the mirrors:

Hi gehogan3, thanks for the report!
We believe this has been fixed in nectar-1.5.0, but there's also a patch that has been backported to nectar-1.3.3 (which is probably the version you're using). The patch is attached to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1248167. If you try it out and run into problems, please let us know!
