The repository index has become corrupt.

Possible scenario:

  • Upgrades require that all upgrade tasks between the current version and the target version be executed and some major version upgrades require that all repositories be re-indexed. Since this can be a time consuming process these occurrences are extremely limited. The re-index task might fail but the upgrade will succeed leaving a corrupt index.


Trigger a manual re-index of the repository:

You might want to enable debug logging (Administration > Server > "Turn Debugging ON") so that if the re-index fails, you'll have captured the necessary data for Support to start investigating the cause. Monitor disk space as the log files can grow considerably depending on the size of the repository.

  1. Navigate to: Administration > Repositories
  2. Select the repository.
  3. Navigate to: Maintenance
  4. Select the "Start" button to the right of "Re-index".
