[aktualizr, offline updates] Found in archive a file with bad file type: 40960

Hi,

I’ve been experimenting with offline updates for docker-compose on a Verdin IMX8MM using a slightly customized (mostly drivers and services) TorizonCore 5.7.0.

First, I had to edit platform.py in torizoncore-builder to allow me to login to Docker Hub and use private registries with torizoncore-builder platform lockbox. This works and I ensured the file is properly canonicalized via torizoncore-builder bundle, which does have support for private registries and creates a canonical docker-compose.yml.

Now, I am able to upload a docker-compose.lock.yml file in canonical format to Torizon OTA, create a lockbox via the web interface and then use torizoncore-builder platform lockbox to generate it. I copy it onto a USB stick, plug the stick into the test device, and the update is initiated. All goes well until it reaches a certain tarball/image, where aktualizr-torizon complains that it finds a file with bad file type: 40960, see below.

I investigated this, and in that archive there is a layer.tar that symlinks to another. Aktualizr-torizon cannot deal with this symlink and expects only directories or files in the archive, but the symlink is generated by platform.py calling docker save. In the aktualizr-torizon source, in dockertarballloader.cc, the method loadMetadataEntry contains the following check:

  // Ensure file type is good.
  if (archive_entry_filetype(entry) != AE_IFREG && archive_entry_filetype(entry) != AE_IFDIR) {
    LOG_WARNING << "Found in archive a file with bad file type: " << archive_entry_filetype(entry);
    return false;
  }

I guess docker does not always symlink when saving a tarball and therefore this situation simply didn’t occur before?

Is there a way to prevent docker/torizoncore-builder from creating these symlinks? In any case, I think the fix is that Aktualizr-Torizon should be prepared to handle the eventuality of a symlink.

Kind regards and thanks for reading,

Ernest Van Hoecke

Greetings @Ernest,

This is an interesting issue that never came up in our testing or observations before. I’m unable to reproduce this, at least with any of my test Lockboxes. Is it possible to share with us your containers and compose file that is causing this issue for you? I understand you have the containers in a private registry however. It would just be nice for our team to be able to reproduce this so we can analyze the issue.

Some other questions I have. If you re-download/re-make the Lockbox does this happen every time? Basically is it consistently reproducible?

Also, if you manually docker load the tarball produced from torizoncore-builder platform lockbox, do the container images load properly?

Best Regards,
Jeremias

Thanks for the fast reply @jeremias.tx,

I’ve made the repository producing a symlink public for your testing: Docker Hub. Let me know when we can set it private again, but it contains no critical code and is simply a small edit of Weston. I hope it still occurs using only that repo, but I suspect it will as the symlink pointed to another layer within that image. The docker-compose snippet of this weston container is included below. I did find some info online that this is a thing docker save can do. I also manually replaced the symlink with a copy of the layer.tar it pointed to which seemed to fix the issue. I’ll be scripting that step if necessary.

This did seem to be consistent yes. It always occurs in the same spot and I tried a few different lockboxes and copy methods before I singled in on the issue.

I can try the docker load later, but don’t have the time now.

Kind regards,

Ernest Van Hoecke

Thank you very much for providing a way to reproduce this, it’s very much appreciated.

That said, using this image I was able to reproduce the error on my own setup quite easily now. I’ve made a copy of the container image so we should be able to reproduce this for further testing and analysis going forward.

As for the issue itself after a brief internal discussion this does seem to be a limitation due to the lack of proper symlink handling. I’ll pass this onto our teams as a bug to be fixed. Once it gets properly fixed we’ll try to notify you, though I can’t give any timelines yet of when this will happen.

Best Regards,
Jeremias

I’m glad to hear it helped!

This might be unrelated, but is there a way to programmatically generate a lockbox on the Torizon Platform? I’d like to do that as part of a CI workflow.

EDIT: I’ve figured it out via the Chrome dev tools and stumbling upon the API client creator in the Torizon Platform settings.

Kind regards,
Ernest

Though you already found this out for yourself, I do have some additional information to provide on this. We’re beginning to document the API for our platform service on our developer site as seen here: API Docs | Toradex Developer Center

Keep in mind this documentation is still in progress and early. Furthermore, we also plan to create a CLI tool that will act as a sort of wrapper for the API, though this is still in the conceptual phase and we have nothing to share at the moment.

Best Regards,
Jeremias

Thans for the info! I was sure there’d be some documentation on it but couldn’t (quickly) find it via Google or the dev site. A tiny CLI for this lockbox creation is exactly what I made.

Kind regards,

Ernest Van Hoecke

The API for our platform is in the process of becoming more public. Well the API itself is already public, but the other things like supporting documentation and tooling are still a work in itself. So keep an eye out as these things become more polished and available.

Jeremias
