Enable the "Acquire-By-Hash" feature for Debian repositories. This is documented in the official Debian specification:

With this improvement we will be able to better handle the scenarios where we receive hashsum mismatch errors. When this is enabled the Packages file will be requested by hash value and not by the location given in the Release file

We're seeing the race condition on our Ubuntu 16.04 instances.

From our puppet runs:

Error: /Stage[main]/Apt::Update/Exec[apt_update]/returns: change from notrun to 0 failed: /usr/bin/apt-get update returned 100 instead of one of [0]
Notice: /Stage[main]/Apt::Update/Exec[apt_update]/returns: Err:23 https://artifactory.mydomain.com/artifactory/Ubuntu xenial-security/main amd64 Packages
Notice: /Stage[main]/Apt::Update/Exec[apt_update]/returns:   Hash Sum mismatch

Any chance we can get this patched into 5.2+?

From my understanding, this has not been resolved yet? This is marked as "RESOLVED" but duplicated to RTFACT-12604, which is still "Ready For Code Review"...
