rpm-ostreed failed to find image

rpm-ostreed failed to find image

Today, I ran into a strange issue after messing around a bit too much with OpenShift's Machine Config Operator. After deploying a MachineConfig with a custom osImageURL: and after undeploying the MachineConfig, the node's rpm-ostreed service got stuck with the following error message:

I found the solution to my issue in https://github.com/coreos/rpm-ostree/issues/4185:

unshare -m /bin/sh -c \
  'mount -o remount,rw /sysroot && ostree container image pull /ostree/repo ostree-unverified-image:docker://registry.example.com/dir/image:tag'
Wrote: ostree-unverified-image:docker://registry.example.com/dir/image:tag => e8d83702a7c9a86b67d67ea6991a7bcfea717f4bf756fe031619a9d560283d81

Followed by a restart of rpm-ostreed:

1
systemctl restart rpm-ostreed
