Hey @vismid86,

I sometimes have the same issue - it depends on time of day specifically when using a robot account (if that’s what you’re using) on Quay.

Fixing this usually involves just changing your env vars oddly enough.

Thanks for the response.

We are using dockerhub organization account. Private repository for images. It is trying just pull a base Ubuntu image.

I couldn’t understand on how the time of a day affects this. The same test has been running for more than a year successfully, but just started to fail.
