      Description of problem:

      OVN image pre-puller blocks upgrades in environments where the images have already been pulled but the registry server is not available.

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

      4.12

      How reproducible:

      Always

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Create a cluster in a disconnected environment.

      2. Manually pre-pull all the images required for the upgrade. For example, get the list of images needed:

      # oc adm release info quay.io/openshift-release-dev/ocp-release:4.12.10-x86_64 -o json > release-info.json
      

      And then pull them in all the nodes of the cluster:

      # crio pull $(cat release-info.json | jq -r '.references.spec.tags[].from.name')
      

      3. Stop or somehow make the registry unreachable, then trigger the upgrade.

      Actual results:

      The upgrade blocks with the following error reported by the cluster version operator:

      # oc get clusterversion; oc get co network
      NAME      VERSION   AVAILABLE   PROGRESSING   SINCE   STATUS
      version   4.12.10   True        True          62m     Working towards 4.12.11: 483 of 830 done (58% complete), waiting on network
      NAME      VERSION   AVAILABLE   PROGRESSING   DEGRADED   SINCE   MESSAGE
      network   4.12.10   True        True          False      133m    DaemonSet "/openshift-ovn-kubernetes/ovnkube-upgrades-prepuller" is not available (awaiting 1 nodes)
      

      The reason for that is that the `ovnkube-upgrades-prepuller-...` pod uses `imagePullPolicy: Always` and that fails if there is no registry, even if the image has already been pulled:

      # oc get pods -n openshift-ovn-kubernetes ovnkube-upgrades-prepuller-5s2cn

      Expected results:

      The upgrade should not block.

      Additional info:

      We detected this in a situation where we want to be able to perform upgrades in a disconnected environment and without the registry server running. See MGMT-13733 for details.
