Description of problem:
vsphere build cluster updated from 4.7.6 to 4.7.9 and stuck on node tuning operator not progressing to 4.7.9. The new pod got stuck on leader election:

Without properly investigating must-gather yet, this reminds me of: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1916865
Were there other operators also stuck during the upgrade?

Looks similar, I guess it could be closed as a dupe

> Were there other operators also stuck during the upgrade?

Marketplace also got stuck similarly

Comment 4 Jiří Mencák 2021-05-10 14:15:48 UTC
As other operators are stuck in a similar way, I'm closing this BZ as duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1916865
There is a Jira card to re-assess the current implementation of leader election in NTO not to rely on ConfigMaps and the garbage collection mechanism as it doesn't seem reliable.
Currently, the plan is to have the rewrite done in OCP 4.9.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 1916865 ***

Can you link the Jira card, or point us at something else where we can subscribe to hear about the fix?

Sorry, I meant to include it in comment 4.
https://issues.redhat.com/browse/PSAP-314

Note this is for NTO only, other operators will have to do a similar fix.
