ArgoCD intermittent updates to manifest fail

Under our scenario we put Github Actions to use argocd cli to update our app's manifest, which is like below

      - name: Update ArgoCD Image
        uses: clowdhaus/argo-cd-action/@main
        if: ${{ inputs.argocd_app_name != '' }}
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
        with:
          version: 2.6.7
          command: app set ${{ inputs.argocd_app_name }}
          options: |
            --server ${{ vars.ARGOCD_URL }}
            --kustomize-image ${{ fromJSON(steps.meta.outputs.json).tags[0] }}
            --auth-token ${{ secrets.MEEX_ARGOCD_TOKEN }}

In this case, the cli will update argocd app manifest of source.kustomize.images according to your image.

project: default
source:
  repoURL: 'https://github.com/myteam/gitops.git'
  path: apps/test/overlays/test
  targetRevision: main
  kustomize:
    images:
      - 'ghcr.io/myteam/helloworld:sha-f205e29'
destination:
  server: 'https://kubernetes.default.svc'
  namespace: default
syncPolicy:
  syncOptions:
    - CreateNamespace=false

Most of our practices works well but sometimes the update would not succeed at all. If we take a deep look into the process, we will find the logs.

Sometimes the UpdateSpec method also fails.

I searched for the error '%!v(PANIC=String method: reflect.Value.Bytes of non-byte slice)' and found someone who use argocd 2.7.1 also faced this problem(mine is 2.6.7). Currently I have no idea of how to deal with it.

Although the occurrence frequency is not high, occasional trust issues may arise, and there is no guarantee every release will be successful. If one has to check whether each release is successful, the mental burden will increase substantially, and CD will become meaningless.
