I received the following error when performing a guix pull:

I've seen this kind of error before in other software and I believe it
occurs when a handshake can't be performed in time and the connection is
dropped; I was able to successfully pull a few minutes later under better
conditions. That being said I bring this up because a problem in my network
(I think) is being treated like an error in your program.

Yes, it looks like a connectivity issue, either on your side or on the
side of https://ci.guix.gnu.org (though I’m unaware of downtime today).

Could you try again?

Thanks,

Sure; though, as I mentioned before I did try again and it did work. Doing
a pull once more I failed with:

guix substitute: error: TLS error in procedure 'handshake': Error in the
pull function.
substitution of
/gnu/store/k1da7bv579d8gvwdrakd9l4hxswknff2-guix-module-union failed
guix pull: error: some substitutes for the outputs of derivation
`/gnu/store/k2gdq7ahjaqmdgjr9xwywqpxvzazn467-guix-e07573432.drv' failed
(usually happens due to networking issues); try `--fallback' to build
derivation from source

As with before, I was also able to succeed on a subsequent pull; but this
error seemed to be handled better as it suggested both the cause of the
problem and a possible solution.

Could it be that you’re on a flaky network connection?

If the connection is dropped, there’s little we can do, but maybe you’re
suggesting better error reporting?

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Hm, are gexp's checkpointable?

Some ftp can reconnect and continue, IUUC. Idk how that works with https.
Can one adjust timeouts? Continue on an alternate mirror?
E.g. for downloading substitutes?

In general, I hate it when I get 1.0GB through a 1.1GB ISO and lose it all,
esp when I pay by GBs. Can guix help? :)

BTW, I think I have heard of security risks in restarting, but perhaps
with end-to-end integrity checks it is not an issue despite poss MM trying?

Yes and yes. I didn't state explicitly that it was a problem with my
network only because I didn't want to appear overconfident in my amateur
diagnosis and I definitely prefer the second error message to the one that
dumps a trace and prompts the filing of a bug. This:

substitute: guix substitute: error: TLS error in procedure 'handshake':
Error in the pull function.

Please report it by email to <bug-guix@gnu.org>.

is much different than this:

guix substitute: error: TLS error in procedure 'handshake': Error in the
pull function.
substitution of
/gnu/store/k1da7bv579d8gvwdrakd9l4hxswknff2-guix-module-union failed
guix pull: error: some substitutes for the outputs of derivation
`/gnu/store/k2gdq7ahjaqmdgjr9xwywqpxvzazn467-guix-e07573432.drv' failed
(usually happens due to networking issues); try `--fallback' to build
derivation from source

especially to one as new to scheme as myself. I can't say why the two
errors were different as I'm not familiar mechanically with what phases
pull goes through but I can say the first error occurred during the
beginning of the pull and the second occurred in the wrap up thing it does
towards the end.

I see.  I’ll take a look and see how we can improve on this.

I have not looked closely but from observation I think currently guix 
first decides if it is going to commit to using a substitute, or falling 
back to building locally, by checking if substitutes are available then 
committing to a method. This differs from the concept of a fallback in 
my head, which would involve trying option B only after option A has 
been tried and failed. guix's way means there are a class of failures 
where guix simply gives up and stops instead of falling back.

In my experience, probably 10% of the time I try a guix pull; guix 
package -u ., there is some weird network error that doesn't happen the 
second time I run it. Perhaps it would be sufficient to simply try twice 
for every substitute; accumulate a list of failed substitutes and retry 
them after iterating through the list of substitutes to download, then 
if that fails try building from source. only then are we allowed to give up.

What do you mean?

It rings a bell to me.  Something about the configuration of Cuirass and
the build farm serving the substitutes; related to caching.  But I am
not able to find the relevant pointer.


All the best,
