Container images are incorrectly read during CI since 2019-04-16
After 2019-04-16 gnutls CI jobs started failing with a very strange message:
./bootstrap: line 728: /builds/common/gnulib/gnulib-tool: No such file or directory
This uses the image
registry.gitlab.com/gnutls/build-images:buildenv-f29 which contains that file. The day before all CI jobs were run fine, and were able to read that missing file above.
The containers are generated in gitlab.com (as seen by the registry), and a regeneration of them did not address the issue. Even after regeneration the error persists.
By downloading the registry image I can verify that the reported as missing file is present. There seems to be an issue in how gitlab CI runners are reading the containers.
This also affects the wget and libidn2 (CC: @rockdaboot ) projects, with exactly the same error:
(btw. clearing the CI runner cache had no effect in any of these projects)
