CentOs Yum error upgrading Railgun

Good morning,
today we received an error that the cloudflare/7/x86_64/primary repro has an error in the primary.xml.

Stated Error : “Parsing primary.xml error: Start tag expected, ‘<’ not found” in cloudflare/7/x86_64/primary

We are running under CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)

Anyone an idea how to fix this issue?

Thanks and best regards

I’m getting an error when updating yum repo data:

Parsing primary.xml error: Start tag expected, '<' not found

I’ve isolated it to your repository, specifically the primary.xml file. It’s malformed. I can reproduce the issue by running this code:

curl http://pkg.cloudflare.com/dists/7/main/binary-x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz | gunzip -c primary.xml.gz | head -1
-e <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The " -e " at the beginning of the line causes the xml to be malformed. I couldn’t find anywhere else to report this issue.

Thanks. Seems to be fixed now.
