Repeatable "failed to upload workspace" error

We have a build where a job on the first stage populates a workspace that other jobs on further stages depend on.
The step to package and upload the workspace seems to be failing consistently_

Creating workspaces
Workspace: mavenLocal
0.00s1.64sadding /home/travis/.m2 to workspace
adding /home/travis/.ivy to workspace
creating directory /home/travis/.ivy
adding /home/travis/build/akka/akka-grpc/runtime/target to workspace

0.00s4.65schanges detected, packing new archive
uploading 215583966/mavenLocal.tgz
failed to upload workspace

Is that a general transient error affecting all users? Is there a console/logs where I can find more information regarding the cause of the issue?



Is this possibly related to Can't clear caches as 'Caches' settings page empty - #8 by BanzaiMan ?

The same job that fails to upload the workspace also fails to upload the cache. :thinking:

We are hit by the same - failed to upload workspace + failed to upload cache. Sent our CI and whole team in emergency mode and making up distraction tasks.

Wiping cache did not help, trying different branches/new branches etc. No changes to .travis.yml config were made and started happening about 3 hours ago.

Having the same issues, both failed to upload workspace and failed to upload cache.


Is this still occurring?

Yes, it’s still failing, both workspace and cache uploading.

Thanks in advance @Montana

Also experiencing this in GitHub - scala/scala: Scala 2 compiler and standard library. For bugs, see scala/bug

The issue seems to have resolved some time this morning.

Hey all,

The issue was resolved. If you are still experiencing this issue, please post back and I myself, and support will look into it further.


We’re still experiencing the issue with the latest build on our repository: Travis CI - Test and Deploy Your Code with Confidence.

Hi @SimeonGerginov,

I will forward this to support internally.

Hi @Montana,

Any update on why the build is failing ?

Hi, we currently have 3 Pull Requests which builds are failing due to the same reason - failed to upload workspace.

Here is a list of the failing builds: Travis CI - Test and Deploy Your Code with Confidence

Hi @SimeonGerginov,

Have you filed a ticket with support yet?

No, I haven’t, can you list me the steps on how to report this issue to support ?

Hi @Montana,

I’ve written an email to the support team, describing the issue, as I didn’t found any other wait to file a ticket. Please let me know if there is another procedure for filling a ticket.
