Description of problem:

Sometimes the number of packages on the client in a repository(could be any repo like RHEL7 base) are less(at times it's only 100-200 only), there are no filters in the content view, content view publishes task completely without any issue and last repo sync was also successful.

Validate sync of the repository and publishing the content view again helps to resolve such issues but what is the cause of such issue, we should prevent such issues(metadata corruption) from happening in the product itself.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All active versions.

How reproducible:

We haven't seen this since Satellite 6.10, it seems to be fixed by Pulp 3.  Requesting verification before setting to CLOSED-CURRENTRELEASE.

For Satellite 6.8 and 6.9 the workaround seems to be "Republish Repository Metadata" or "Validate Content Sync" - this seems to work pretty reliably.

Comment 56 Daniel Alley 2022-10-19 18:57:53 UTC
I strongly encourage an upgrade to 6.11 or (soon) 6.12 for any customers still encountering this.

Comment 57 Vladimír Sedmík 2022-11-30 13:33:55 UTC
I haven't been able to reproduce the issue with the 6.12 Satellite.
Marking as Verified and proposing to CLOSED-CURRENTRELEASE.

This bugzilla was remaining open only to track the issue for 6.9.z, in case a fix was needed there.  At this time 6.9 is EOL; therefore, moving to CLOSED:CURRENTRELEASE.
