Hello,

quite often, and quite randomly I run into this situation that whenever
Guix tries to rebuild a profile, and sometimes while downloading from
local Guix hosts sharing their store items, the process will crash with
the following error:

Toggle snippet (35 lines)

Unfortunately this crash happens at random. Other times it goes
through. Current checkout is ff14bc60e56fb0c6636da1da9a850b7b04abb367,
which isn't the most current, I know. I've been observing this behavior
since some time now, and haven't figured out what the reason is behind
it yet. The error message looks similar to [1].

The way this error appears is, that I usually have one host that I
upgrade first, and then share the checkout and the store between hosts
to speed up the upgrading process locally. Unfortunately the updater
will crash randomly whenever the host starts scanning other hosts that
are found through mDNS. Sometimes this happens while fetching new
packages into a profile.

I've set up publishing:

Toggle snippet (7 lines)
(service guix-publish-service-type
(guix-publish-configuration (host "0.0.0.0")
(port 3000)
(ttl #f)
(advertise? #t)))

and of course host discovery in guix-service-type too.


Kind regards
Simon

Hi,

I have also seen this kind of crashes on my LAN.
I don't know what causes this issue, but I noticed that it has happened
less often since I activated the cache for the guix-publish service.

I just activated the cache. It hasn't crashed so far.

I suffer from this routinely on my slow HDD machine. I attribute the
failure to some timeout that isn't reported correctly by guile-ssh.
Perhaps related to
update of guile-ssh to try that Artyom has put up on guix-patches; we
should test it.

Thanks,

Guile-SSH is not involved here though.

However, this may well be this ‘guix publish’ bug that was recently
fixed, whereby ‘guix publish’ without ‘--cache’ would send bogus HTTP
replies:


Could you confirm?

Even then, the error message says ‘wrong type error ...’, shouldn't it
say something like ‘bogus HTTP’ or ‘bogus narinfo’ or such instead?

Greetings,
Maxime.

I've reconfigured my offload machine and haven't seen the issue yet.
Tentatively closing.

Thank you for investigating and fixing the issue!

I agree that a more accurate error message would have been useful. If
you have the bandwidth for a patch, I'd be more than happy reviewing it
:-).

HTTP response parsing happens in (web response) though, not in Guix, so
this is where things should be patch.

Currently that code pretty much expects it’s talking to a well-behaved
HTTP server. Changing it to gracefully deal with any kind of garbage
might turn out to be quite an effort.

Food for thought!

Hmm. I see. Maxime, perhaps an issue can be logged against Guile to at
least remember it exists, to tackle by anyone with the
interest/bandwidth. I think it'd be valuable in the long run.

Thank you!
