Error initializing: Looks like "https://kubernetes-charts.storage.googleapis.com" is not a valid chart repository or cannot be reached:

Hey people,

I am using the Auto DevOps file for deploying and in one of the templates: Jobs/Deploy.gitlab-ci.yml it does a job auto-deploy download_chart which does a helm init on the wrong helm image. The error I am getting is this:

$ auto-deploy download_chart Creating /root/.helm Creating /root/.helm/repository Creating /root/.helm/repository/cache Creating /root/.helm/repository/local Creating /root/.helm/plugins Creating /root/.helm/starters Creating /root/.helm/cache/archive Creating /root/.helm/repository/repositories.yaml Adding stable repo with URL: https://kubernetes-charts.storage.googleapis.com Error: error initializing: Looks like "https://kubernetes-charts.storage.googleapis.com" is not a valid chart repository or cannot be reached: Failed to fetch https://kubernetes-charts.storage.googleapis.com/index.yaml : 403 Forbidden

Is there another Deploy template that uses the correct helm link? How can I fix this? Any help will be appreciated.

I’m having the same issue since the end of the last year. 2020 is still hunting me down.

I’m also seeing this issue.

We can currently not install any gitlab managed applications OR uninstall them. My Prometheus is borked and I can’t even reinstall it due to this issue. Is there any work around?

I’ve been able to solve this issue by updating the auto-deploy-image to v1.1.0
Just add these two lines to your .gitlab-ci.yml file.

.auto-deploy:
  image: registry.gitlab.com/gitlab-org/cluster-integration/auto-deploy-image:v1.1.0

Good luck

Am also experiencing this.

No luck.

FWIW adding --stable-repo-url https://charts.helm.sh/stable to our helm init seemed to resolve the issue (for things still using helm v2)

Has anyone come up with a solution for this? I cannot reinstall cert-manager and will have certs expire shortly.

Removing the cluster from gitlab and then adding it back resolved the issues for me

worked for me, thanks!
