GeoNode uses the OWSLib package to parse the ISO metadata.  Looking deeper
at your metadata sample, your abstract is cast as:

  <gmx:Anchor ...>

OWSLib looks for the following construct:


so in your case gmx:Anchor is not being picked up as an abstract.

This is the first time (INSPIRE-based and elsewhere) that I've seen this
design pattern.  Is it possible to update your metadata as a workaround?  At
the same time it would be worth to investigate in OWSLib and possibly apply
a issue/patch/workaround.
