autopkgtests are still flaky

Bug #1775097 reported by Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre on 2018-06-04
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nplan (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

autopkgtests gating the netplan releases in the Ubuntu archive.

[Test case]
Validate that the tests are passing; specifically test_eth_* and test_bond_resend_igmp.

[Regression potential]
Given that this is limited to the test suite, there is only very limited chance of regression from this SRU. Specifically, this is meant to fix the test mentioned in test cases. New test failures should be investigated as potentially caused by this SRU.


Autopkgtests for / nplan are still flaky, and tend to fail to run succesfully due to bad configuration rather than actually failing tests.

Fix this.

Are they only flaky for Xenial? I ask as that's the only release I see an upload for.

Hello Mathieu, or anyone else affected,

Accepted nplan into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance!

Verification-done on xenial: nplan/0.32~16.04.6: lists the autopkgtest results on xenial. The tests that were flaky are now passing at first run (so no longer flaky), and are reproducible on the command-line.

arm64, s390x are permanent failures for an entirely different reason: test bed failures, due to missing wireless tools/drivers (s390x doesn't have cfg80211, armhf doesn't have iw installed, armhf waiting for tests to complete).

I feel this qualifies as validation passing.

  * tests/ Fix autopkgtests involving bonds/bridges to do proper
    cleanup every time, so later tests don't unnecessarily wait for an
    interface not configured to be up. (LP: #1775097)

  [ Daniel Axtens ]
  * Generate udev rules files to rename devices (LP: #1770082)
    Due to a systemd issue[1], using link files to rename interfaces
    doesn't work as expected. Link files will not rename an interface
    if it was already renamed, and interfaces are renamed in initrd, so
    set-name will often not work as expected when rebooting. However,
    rules files will cause a renaming, even if the interface has been
    renamed in initrd.
