In one of our Nexus instances, using the Web GUI, I deleted several Repositories and BLOB stores. After each deletion, I received the green pop-up message “Repository deleted” or “Blobstore deleted”. Next, I restarted the Nexus service. I see many errors in the nexus.log file similar to this, and referring to the Repositories that I deleted:
2020-10-02 14:37:24,595+0200 WARN [healthcheck-tasks-10-thread-1] *SYSTEM com.sonatype.nexus.plugins.healthcheck.service.impl.HealthCheckTaskManagerImpl - Unable to unsubscribe health check for repository my-repo javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
Since the repositories are already deleted, I can no longer use the GUI to disable these health checks.
Can anyone advise how I can get rid of the obsolete references to the deleted repositories so that our nexus.log file is not littered with these errors?
