Description Jan Senkyrik 2021-11-19 15:22:21 UTC
Description of problem:

Synchronization of EPEL repositories fails with the following error:
Incoming and existing advisories have the same id but different timestamps and non-intersecting package lists. It is likely that they are from two different incompatible remote repositories. E.g. RHELX-repo and RHELY-debuginfo repo. Ensure that you are adding content for the compatible repositories. To allow this behavior, set ALLOW_AUTOMATIC_UNSAFE_ADVISORY_CONFLICT_RESOLUTION = True (q.v.) in your configuration. Advisory id: FEDORA-EPEL-2016-f74772a384

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.10

How reproducible:
Can't reproduce.

Kind regards,

Comment 17 Lai 2022-05-24 23:25:23 UTC
This is a difficult bz to verify.  The best I could do was sync an EPEL repo, then resync it several times to see if there's an issue.  So far, after 5 resyncs, the issue doesn't present itself.  I also checked the code base and everything is in there.

Verified on 6.11 snap 21 with python38-pulp-rpm-3.17.5-1.1.el8pc.noarch.  Tested this on both rhel7 and rhel8.
