Flaky lnt failure "Couldn't find index page for 'lit'"

Hey folks,

I'm seeing some, what appear to be, flaky failures at least on this
ppc builder running the lnt tests:

https://lab.llvm.org/buildbot/#/builders/57/builds/6037/steps/12/logs/stdio

Could someone take a look & figure out what we could do about it? (Not
sure if it's a problem with the builder/worker or the lnt suite
itself)

- Dave

Wow, this seems to happen quite often. Seems like it is unable to reach https://pypi.python.org/simple/lit/ when it fails. We’ll have to investigate the steps this bot takes and why it is contacting this at all.
Thank you for reporting this, we will investigate.

Thanks a bunch!

Any update on this?

I went to check if the bot was still experiencing such failures, but
it looks like the bots been red for a while for some other reason:

Hi David,
we are currently in the process of switching the bot over to use cmake/ninja for testing test-suite. Due to issues we experienced in doing so, we ended up moving the bot to the staging master until we can ensure that the necessary patches in zorg land and actually allow the bot to work correctly.
Thank you so much for following up.
