Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
If the user specifies showdupesfromrepos=1 in /etc/yum.conf, multiple versions of a package could be returned causing the task checking for docker to fail. The option 'showdupesfromrepos=0' was added to the repoquery command to force only one version, regardless of the local configuration.

Version: v3.11.170

Platform: RHEV

What happened?

Customer is trying to do minor version upgrade from 3.11.117 to 3.11.404, The upgradation has failed with following error message.

1. Hosts:    testcluster1.sss.kko.ch,  testcluster2.sss.kko.ch,  testcluster3.hel.kko.ch
   Play:     Verify docker upgrade targets
   Task:     Required docker version not available (non-atomic)
   Message:  This playbook requires access to Docker 1.13 or later

The up-gradation has failed because customer has enabled  showdupesfromrepos=1 in /etc/yum.conf on their servers and disabling showdupesfromrepos=0 temporarily made the upgrade successful.

By default (showdupesfromrepos=0)  repoquery will only show one line of output. With showdupesfromrepos=1 in yum.conf repoquery will list all available versions.

What did you expect to happen?

Customer does not want to disable the parameter showdupesfromrepos in /etc/yum.conf

Openshift-ansible should able to make the upgrade success without disabling parameter showdupesfromrepos=0 

How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible)?

Enable parameter "showdupesfromrepos" in /etc/yum.conf on master nodes and worker nodes and upgrade the openshift cluster.

Anything else we need to know?

We found, Engineering team already working on this request from the following pull-request.


Comment 1 Russell Teague 2021-04-29 13:42:04 UTC
The workaround is to remove showdupesfromrepos from /etc/yum.conf or set showdupesfromrepos=0.

Comment 2 sphoorthi 2021-04-30 02:50:35 UTC
Hello Russell,

The workaround is setting showdupesfromrepos=0 in /etc/yum.conf on all the nodes.

Let me know if you need any other information.

@skanniha Did using the workaround resolve your issue?

QE could reproduce this issue with openshift-ansible-3.11.439-1.git.0.94e1abb.el7.noarch.rpm.

When showdupesfromrepos=1 was set in /etc/yum.conf on the masters/workers, run a playbook that will use "{{ repoquery_cmd }}", such as playbooks/byo/openshift-cluster/upgrades/docker/upgrade.yml.

ansible-playbook openshift-ansible/playbooks/byo/openshift-cluster/upgrades/docker/upgrade.yml -v


 TASK [container_runtime : Required docker version not available (non-atomic)] ***

 fatal: [ci-vm-10-0-151-126.hosted.upshift.rdu2.redhat.com]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "This playbook requires access to Docker 1.13 or later"}

The playbook in openshift-ansible-3.11.448-1.git.0.0d5b1b2.el7.noarch.rpm works as expected.
