"Badly formed yEnc article" error stops download

Post by 88keyz »

In the beta when an article returns the following error "Badly formed yEnc article in ..." it causes the download to stop with only a few MB left and it never completes. I've been having this issue for a while with the 0.8x/1.0.x branch but wasn't able to put my finger on the cause. Problem exists on git, PPA and Windows versions however it doesn't exist on 0.7.x versions. I tested a couple of NZB's on both Ubuntu with the git and PPA versions of the beta branch and on Windows with the beta version and on every version I get the same thing, downloads stop with a few MB left and will not complete. Same NZB's on Ubuntu and Windows in the 0.7.x branch download, complete and extract fine. Anyone else seeing this behavior?

That would be a serious issue indeed.
I will investigate this.

Maybe send one of the affected NZB's to [email protected]?
I never seen this behaviour, maybe it's a specific NZB/newsserver combination?

I sent 2 NZB's that I used to test. Both of them have them have the yEnc issue. As for servers, I have Easynews and XS News and I get the same behavior on the US and EU Easynews servers and on the XS News server. All servers connecting using SSL, SSL type is set to V23 on the 0.7.x setups and to Default on the 0.8.x/1.0.x setups.

I just downloaded them but they worked fine for me, so it must be in the combination of the newsservers. I do see the badly formed yEnc in the logs, but it continues just fine.
Astraweb and Frugal (also tried with just Frugal) on SSL.

Thanks for checking. Based on your result I disabled my XS News server and the downloads completed fine. Guess that was the problem all along. :-[

Upon further investigation it turns out that the reason for the issue with the XS News server was the OpenSSL protocol support in the pyOpenSSL package that is included in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. With Ubuntu 14.04 LTS the only available version of pyOpenSSL from apt-get is 0.13.2 which only supports TLS versions up to v1.0. However, I was able to install the latest version of pyOpenSSL, 0.15.1 - which supports TLS protocols up to v1.2, from source and this solved the problem.

For anyone else that experiences this issue, or any other issues relates to SSL protocol support, these were the steps that I took from the Ubuntu command line interface.

WARNING: Do this at your own risk! These steps may affect more than just SABnzbd.

1) Change to your home directory

Code: Select all

cd ~
2) Remove installed version of python-openssl

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove python-openssl
3) Download latest version of pyOpenSSL

Code: Select all

wget http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/p/pyOpenSSL/pyOpenSSL-0.15.1.tar.gz
4) Extract downloaded archive

Code: Select all

tar -zxvf pyOpenSSL-0.15.1.tar.gz
5) Change to new pyOpenSSL directory

Code: Select all

cd pyOpenSSL-0.15.1
6) Compile and install new pyOpenSSL version

Code: Select all

sudo python setup.py install
7) Restart SABnzbd

Does this mean that XS News only supports TLS 1.1 and 1.2 ?
Didn't you get an error message about not being able to access the server?

No, there was never an error regarding access. And As I said same servers worked perfect under 0.7.x but that only used the SSL protocol. Could be poor protocol negotiation with the server, hard to say for certain because the only errors I ever got were regarding yEnc. All I can say is that it was a repeatable problem with certain NZBs. After upgrading the pyOpenSSL library the same NZBs complete without issue. Safihre was right though in that the issue a server related one, at least for me.

No, reader.xsnews.nl:563 offers SSL 2 and 3, and TLS 1, 1.1 and 1.2. So it must be something else.

Code: Select all

 rDNS (94.232.116.131):  reader.xsnews.nl.
 Service detected:       Couldn't determine what's running on port 563, assuming no HTTP service => skipping all HTTP checks


 Testing protocols (via sockets except TLS 1.2, SPDY+HTTP2)

Sounds more like bugs in OpenSSL to me.
What I've seen so far is that SSL connections work or don't work,
not selective errors in the actual data.
0.7.20 defaulted to V23, which is auto-negotiate.
What setting did XS have in your setup?

FWIW: I checked my own Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS, and it indeed has TLS1, and not higher:

Code: Select all

2016-02-06 23:06:12,164::INFO::[sabnzbdplus:1367] SSL potentially supported protocols ['SSLv23', 'SSLv3', 'TLSv1']

... if I only had a xsnews account ... or borrow from the OP ...

Manual OpenSSL session looks good

So I would say it is NOT related to Ubuntu 14.04.3 or 15.04

Let's check some more:

...

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Downloads$ cat sabnzbd\ \(1\).log | grep CRC | grep upload.usenetsys.com | wc -l
349
[email protected]:~/Downloads$ cat sabnzbd\ \(1\).log | grep CRC | grep -v upload.usenetsys.com | wc -l
0
Now check the NZB:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Downloads$ cat bucks.nzb | grep "segment bytes" | grep upload.usenetsys.com | wc -l
642
[email protected]:~/Downloads$ cat bucks.nzb | grep "segment bytes" | grep -v upload.usenetsys.com | head
<segment bytes="259879" number="1">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="259647" number="2">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="259287" number="3">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="258846" number="4">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="258810" number="5">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="258879" number="6">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="258994" number="7">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="258944" number="8">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="259138" number="9">[email protected]</segment>
<segment bytes="259151" number="10">[email protected]</segment>

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Downloads$ cat bucks.nzb | grep "segment bytes" | grep -v upload.usenetsys.com | wc -l
884
[email protected]:~/Downloads$ cat bucks.nzb | grep "segment bytes" | grep powerpost | wc -l
884
So ... the NZB has two kinds of articles
from upload.usenetsys.com: 642 articles, with 349 CRC errors. And: letters, numbers and "$" in the article name
from powerpost2000AA.local: 884, with 0 CRC errors. And: only letters and numbers in the article name.

Strange. Coincidence? Or is there a problem with the upload.usenetsys.com articles? Maybe there is misccomunication between SAB and xsnews with the $-sign in the article name?

Re: "Badly formed yEnc article" error stops download

I would agree that it seems that the issue is not with SABnzbd and it's more likely related to OpenSSL, the USP or a combination of both. Could be I was the only person affected by this particular issue (system or ISP issue maybe?) in which case it'll be hard to replicate. The only thing that was weird to me was that the issue only started with 0.8.x releases and 0.7.x continued to work perfectly. That was the reason that I assumed the issue was related to SABnzbd but it seems I was wrong. I'll continue to monitor the situation and see if it repeats itself and try to provide more info if I can spot anything that seems relevant to the problem.
