unattended-upgrades not upgrading "-wikimedia" packages automatically in wmcs
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Noticed this while investigating something else, I believe u-a in wmcs is supposed to upgrade all packages coming from e.g. jessie-wikimedia too. That doesn't seem to be the case on a couple of instances I spot checked, namely filippo-test-jessie3.eqiad.wmflabs and deployment-prometheus01.eqiad.wmflabs

Probably we just need something like this patch in operations/puppet:

Change 389480 had a related patch set uploaded (by Arturo Borrero Gonzalez; owner: Arturo Borrero Gonzalez):
[operations/puppet@production] base: labs: unattended upgrades for wikimedia packages

New patchset with a different approach: rOPUP9e9c5e1c06c9

Trying puppet compiler for unexpected side changes in other hosts:

hhvm is not upgraded because the package has origin=Wikimedia and it is not taken in account by unattended-upgrade default configuration.

Ages ago, I had the same requirements: have HHVM to magically upgrade on CI. I went with later fixed up with Filippo via . On the side, Unattended-Upgrade::Allowed-Origins is deprecated. Should be replaced with Unattended-Upgrade::Origins-Pattern:: which expect a slightly different value.

End result would be:

apt::conf { 'unattended-upgrades-wikimedia':
     priority => '51',
     # Key with trailing '::' to append to potentially existing entry
     key      => 'Unattended-Upgrade::Origins-Pattern::',
     value    => 'origin=Wikimedia,codename=${distro_codename}-wikimedia',

To confirm one can then:

unattended-upgrade --debug --dry-run 2>&1|grep ^Allowed

BTW the test that @hashar mentioned pass in my standalone puppet master:

aborrero@puppet-vm:~$ sudo unattended-upgrade --debug --dry-run 2>&1|grep ^Allowed
Allowed origins are: ['origin=Debian,codename=jessie,label=Debian-Security', 'origin=Wikimedia,codename=jessie-wikimedia']

Change 389480 merged by Arturo Borrero Gonzalez:
[operations/puppet@production] apt: unattended upgrades for wikimedia packages by default

@chasemp and me merged this patch and did a controlled deployment into the tools cluster.
