Build times out with no apparent reason

Out of the blue, builds stopped working for my project: https://travis-ci.com/revolter/fastlane-plugin-icon_versioning

What could be the issue?

I know even less about your code than you do. Add/enable some verbose/diagnostic output to get an idea of what the program is doing.

It works locally, so it’s a bug of Travis CI.

I tried cloning your repo, checking out v1.3.1, running bundle install and bundle exec rake on a fresh Docker image. It similarly hangs.

If it works for your local machine, it is often a sign that your environment has something that CI does not.


Now, more to your issue.

In this hung state, aborting with ^C does not inform much more.

However, if I run bundle exec rspec instead and abort, I get:

travis@5e56b13a3919:~/revolter/fastlane-plugin-icon_versioning$ bundle exec rspec

Fastlane::Actions::IconVersioningAction
  #run
^C
RSpec is shutting down and will print the summary report... Interrupt again to force quit.

covert complains about the failure for a lot longer if I wait longer before aborting, so I’ll assume that your issue is this: that convert does not recover from this error gracefully and try in vain ad infinitum.

I hope this helps.

Wow, thank you very much for taking your time for this! I’ll look into it.

I think that it was related to Travis updated something, or maybe mini_magick. I don’t know. But adding this:

before_install:
   - sudo apt-get update
   - sudo apt-get install -y ghostscript

fixed it.
