Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch is unable to build store metadata due to issues with segment info integrity during a commit operation. This could be due to corruption in the index or disk issues. To resolve this, you can try the following: 1) Use the Elasticsearch Check Index API to identify and potentially fix the corruption. 2) If the issue persists, consider restoring the index from a backup. 3) If it’s a disk issue, check the disk’s health and replace it if necessary. Always ensure to have a backup strategy to prevent data loss.
