To overcome this challenge, If the objective is to maintain access to all artifacts in the cache, irrespective of the upstream repository's state, the recommended approach is to copy these artifacts from the cache to a local repository. Moving the affected packages to a local repository triggers the generation of fresh metadata after deployment. This ensures the successful resolution of the package, mitigating the impact of upstream deletions.

Managing package deletions in upstream repositories is a crucial aspect of maintaining a robust and reliable Artifactory setup. By understanding the intricacies of metadata handling and adopting the recommended approach of utilizing local repositories, developers can ensure seamless access to required artifacts and prevent disruptions in their build processes.
