Description

Dear support,

When we plug our servers to our apt pulp repository, same packages are installed again an again. I checked and there is a difference between source package manifest and pulp deb manifest. There is an example for wget :

Ubuntu repository :

This behavior seems to be identical to this ticket : https://pulp.plan.io/issues/7190

Pulp version:

Pulp core: 3.9.0 Pulp deb: 2.9.0

This suggests pulp_deb is losing the following fields: Multi-Arch, Original-Maintainer, Size, Task, Description-md5

I will need to investigate.

If you need it, I can send our repository / remote / publication / distribution configuration.

Actions #3

Updated by quba42 almost 2 years ago

The options for the remote are generally useful.

The only other thing beyond that that might be of interest is what combination of "structured" and/or "simple" mode you used for the APT publisher. (This is probably irrelevant to this particular issue but can't hurt either.)

There is the remote option :

        "ca_cert": null,
        "client_cert": null,
        "client_key": null,

        "connect_timeout": null,

        "pulp_last_updated": "2021-02-10T07:29:19.060281Z",
        "sock_connect_timeout": null,
        "sock_read_timeout": null,
        "sync_installer": false,
        "sync_sources": false,
        "sync_udebs": false,
        "tls_validation": true,
        "total_timeout": null,
        "url": "http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/",
        "username": null
    },

The publication is in structured mode. I also tried with simple and we've got same behavior.

Note the Size field has now been fixed under a separate issue: https://pulp.plan.io/issues/8506

I expect this required field was responsible for the symptoms experienced here.

We will be adding functionality to retain arbitrary Package index fields not handled elsewhere under this ticket.

Hello,

Thank's for the fix on Size field. I updated to pulp_deb 15 but i still got the issue.

I checked and the Description-md5 filed is still missing from Release file.

Description-md5 is a field within Packages files not Release files, but I am guessing that was just a slip of the tongue.

I have re-tested, and for upstream repositories containing Description-md5 fields in their package indices (Packages files), I am getting the Description-md5 field in the indices published by pulp_deb. Is it possible the repo you are syncing, does not contain the field? It all seems to be working as expected for me.
