Briefly, this error occurs when the Elasticsearch cluster info update service is disabled. This service is responsible for refreshing the cluster state, which includes information about indices, nodes, and other cluster settings. If it’s disabled, the cluster state won’t be updated, which could lead to outdated information and potential issues. To resolve this, you can enable the cluster info update service by setting the ‘’ setting to a positive value. Alternatively, you can manually refresh the cluster state using the ‘GET /_cluster/state’ API endpoint.
