Problem with Jenkins / bloom-release

asked 2016-09-12 04:07:29 -0500


I am struggling with a persistent error with one of my packages: in the past we have done several releases (bloom-release) without problems, but since a few weeks ago Jenkins is persistently complaining about:

Invoking 'git clone --branch debian/ros-kinetic-mrpt-ekf-slam-3d_0.1.1-0_jessie --depth 1 --no-single-branch /tmp/sourcedeb/source'
Cloning into '/tmp/sourcedeb/source'...
fatal: Remote branch debian/ros-kinetic-mrpt-ekf-slam-3d_0.1.1-0_jessie not found in upstream origin

Indeed, that branch does not exist: I can only see these tags:


Here is the complete log:

My actual questions are:

1) Is there something that I might have done wrong while releasing the package with bloom-release?

2) If not, how can I fix it, apart of doing a "fake" new release as a workaround?

When you ran bloom it probably mentioned a problem when creating the release for Debian Jessie. Most likely due to some missing dependencies. You can either look in the ~/.bloom/logs (or similar) folder for the console output or just try to run it again.

If a dependency is not defined for Jessie you can contribute the missing rule to the rosdistro repo and after it had been merged a new release should pass for Jessie.

Same error on my project here. When I do bloom-release, no errors, "jessie" is just not processed, only debian "willy", "xenial" and rpm "23", "24". bloom version = 0.5.20

nevermind, I had an old version of bloom-release from ( 0.5.20 ), upgrading to version in ( 0.5.22) solved the problem.
