Bug Description

juju bootstrap --credential gandalf google gce
juju deploy cs:canonical-kubernetes
juju status



juju kill-controller --debug -y -t0 gce



The cloud vendor's dashboard shows all instances have been removed.

Although output is drawn out, destroy-controller works without these errors:

juju destroy-controller -y --destroy-all-models gce

I am not sure why you have observed the errors. I am in the process of trying to reproduce what you were seeing...

I've noticed that the instances that were 'not found' but destroyed anyway were on either us-east1-b or us-east1-c. Maybe these zones were more efficient at a time? :)

Anyway, at a cursory glance it looks like some kind of timing issue and the fact that everything gets destroyed successfully in the end is good news. I'll triage this a Low priority.

So I got focused on this and am going to propose a fix soon.

The reason that you are seeing it is due to timing and using -t 0 highlights it.
This 'not found' error is not actually an error in this case (hence, the operation succeeds). It happens because we attempt to destroy all Juju side first which involves removing machines and their instances and then without waiting for the completion (because we've specified -t 0), we attempt to destroy cloud instances. In other words, we try to destroy cloud instances twice, almost at the same time, and there is a greater potential that we'd get some instances listed for destruction but they are being marked for destruction at the same time.

The code does try to cater for this and does have a code path that ignores 'not found' errors. Unfortunately, the check that inspects errors is not correct for GCE errors. And this is the bit that I'll correct - this will stop notifying users of errors that are not actually relevant.

I'll also double-check other providers to ensure that similar behavior works.
