FS#3150 - Packages seem to be missing from intermittently

Device: openwrtorg/rootfs:armvirt-32-19.07.2 Docker image
Version: OpenWrt 19.07

Hi- I hope everyone is doing well.

We’ve got some builds that use the openwrtorg/rootfs:armvirt-32-19.07.2 Docker image; they run around 1600 UTC each day as well as any time somebody amends a related pull request (normally between 0000 UTC to 1000 UTC, our working day for Perth, Australia).

Occasionally, we get failures due to packages missing in OpenWrt (curiously, it’s usually GCC)- more commonly during our morning.

I _think_ this may be a byproduct of the OpenWrt nightly builds happening and the packages being rebuilt, it may be that is the actual build output folder (and so during a build, the contents may change).

I’ve had a look at the timestamps at that URL, I’m not sure what timezone they’re in, but they’re mostly around the 0100 to 0500 range- if this is UTC and my suspicions are correct, then that would definitely cause an increase of this issue during our morning (which is what we see).

I don’t think it’s related to any Docker build cache funniness- we wipe that at 1900 UTC each day.

While you won’t reliably be able to reproduce, here’s a simple test case (requiring Docker for Mac/Windows, or Docker for Linux with docker buildx configured):

- docker run –rm -it openwrtorg/rootfs:armvirt-32-19.07.2 sh
- mkdir /var/lock
- opkg update && opkg install gcc

I’ve attached a log excerpts from our CI system of one such failure.

Thanks and regards,
