The Random Config Job takes random configure values and we consider a
combination that configure rejects as a success. The plan behind the job is
that either configure rejects a combination or the build needs to succeed.
It is unfortunate that during the update of the underlying VM we see
potential flase positives right now but we can just disable the job until
the machine has been updated.

Kind regards,
