Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, many CI jobs are failing for similar reasons on a
number of runners. Examples:


Running /usr/local/bin/cabal update --index=2020-12-21T14:48:20Z...
Downloading the latest package list from
Version of <repo>/root.json is less than the previous version
/usr/local/bin/cabal update --index=2020-12-21T14:48:20Z failed
error: cabal update failed



ERROR: Job failed: failed to pull image

Could it have something to do with the GitLab emergency upgrade that
happened yesterday? Or were the runners reconfigured in some way?

I don't have administrative access to these runners.

I have created an issue:
