adding a "* = 1" to the EXCLUDE section of the search_mapping.ini and only including one repo in the INCLUDE section but the same behavior.

using a shell script iterating through rhodecode-api get_repo repoid:xyz calls I identified a repo that seems to have an issue. Browsing to it via the web interface results in the attached exception being tracked captured in the Exceptions Tracker

Something was wrong with the data in the RC db. I moved the offending repo out of the repository directory and requested a rescan with destroy old data selected. RC reported that it removed said repo as expected. I moved the formerly offending repo back into the repository directory, rescanned and get_repos and rhodecode-index runs successfully now.

Based on the exception this error was caused by encryption problem. The clone_url are encrypted using a key stored in rhodecode.ini if that key changes sometimes decrypted data cannot be read properly. This could be caused by migration from old instance for example.
The encryption key used defaults to
rhodecode.encrypted_values.secret = is not set.
