Verified with latest katello build:

[root@dhcp201-207 ~]# rpm -qa | grep katello
[root@dhcp201-207 ~]# 

I started a repo sync. After few minutes, I navigate to "provider" tab and then navigate back to sync UI tab, didn't see any error on UI.

To confirm, I directly navigated to system tab and then back sync UI, this time again reported error was not reproducible.
