Trouble syncing Hashicorp DEB repository


I am attempting to import the somewhat notorious Hashicorp repository for Debian packages into Katello,
but something is amiss.

My repository settings are as follows:

  • url =>
  • content_type => deb
  • deb_architectures => amd64
  • deb_components => main
  • deb_releases => focal
  • download_policy => immediate

The synchronization task seems to run just fine (Sync Status: Success):

Added Debs: 934
Total steps: 2880/2880
Associating Content: 2874/2874
Downloading Artifacts: 3/3
Un-Associating Content: 0/0
Update PackageIndex units: 2/2
Update ReleaseFile units: 1/1

I can see amd64 packages using the Web UI:

But running apt update on a Ubuntu 20 client returns this error message:

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'all/binary-amd64/Packages' as repository 'katello://...pulp/deb/ORG/Library/ubuntu22-x86_64/custom/hashicorp/hashicorp-focal-x86_64 default InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'amd64'

I also noticed that Katello has an “binary-all”, but not an “binary-amd64” directory under the URL https://...pulp/content/ORG/Library/custom/hashicorp/hashicorp-focal-x86_64/dists/default/all/


The Package / Package.gz files under the URL https://...pulp/content/ORG/Library/custom/hashicorp/hashicorp-focal-x86_64/dists/default/all/binary-all/ are both empty (0 bytes for the Package file and 29 bytes for the Package.gz file).

Expected outcome:

I should be able to import repositories into Katello if a vanilla apt configuration like

deb focal main

works for regular Ubuntu clients.

I remember us having some problem specific to this repository before. We will have a look at your particular symptoms soon.

@fbachmann For now, can you tell us the exact version of the python39-pulp-deb RPM you have installed? (The RPM might also be called something like tfm-pulpcore-python3-pulp-deb depending on your EL version).



# rpm -qa |grep pulp-deb
