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 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!

Regards, Frank

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?
