Foreman Katello Sync freezing on all repos at 74%

on the week end all syncs have frozen, they will not complete past 74%

additionally this was working with no issue and performed a patching cycle flawlessly before this weekend and there was no change in the environment.

I have since found that this actually seems to have been broken since the update cycle. after investigation (restore from checkpoint then attempt patching) the update of these packages breaks it

Hi @bcoleman,

Can you please show us any backtraces you see on the failed Foreman Dynflow task? Also, do you see backtraces in /var/log/messages from around the same time the sync task errored out?
