Description W. Trevor King 2022-03-07 16:58:20 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #2061444 +++

Description of problem:  Using channel candidate-4.10 and upgrading without force, CVO reports that the upgrade is unsafe for about 4 minutes before proceeding:

    - lastTransitionTime: "2022-03-07T15:20:31Z"                                                    
      message: 'Precondition "EtcdRecentBackup" failed because of "ControllerStarted": '
      reason: UpgradePreconditionCheckFailed                                                       
      status: "True"                                                                               
      type: Failing


etcd is not setting a 'message' with ControllerStarted in [1], which makes it hard for folks to figure out what that message means.  It should probably say something like:

  hey, we see we're about to make a minor bump, and will be taking an etcd snapshot shortly

but more formally, or make some other statement that describes what's going on with that condition.

Comment 2 W. Trevor King 2022-05-05 23:56:56 UTC
Message strings are for human consumption, and if no external humans are complaining, I don't think we need to actively backport this one.  I'm also not opposed to backports if they apply cleanly and folks want to do that.  Either way.
