Kubernetes: 4 jobs failed after updating to 1.17.5

After updating DO Managed Kubernetes to 1.17.5, the Kubernetes Dashboard keeps saying there are 4 jobs failed in the Workload status pie chart.
However, when i navigate in the Dashboard to Workloads -> Jobs there is no mentioning of failed jobs and everything seems to work fine. Also, all my deployed apps/charts work fine!

Can you figure out why it keeps saying that 4 jobs have failed?

Hi there!

A few things I would check:

Can you check jobs in other namespaces?
Do you see any pods currently in a failed state that are still deployed?
Can you check cronjobs using the kubectl command that may be creating jobs?

Hi John!

Thanks for the reply. After checking the state of every pod/deployment/pv etc. I’ve figured out there was a PV marked for deletion, so i deleted the PVC and all of a sudden the problem was fixed!

Thanks for your help!
