Travis arm64: a job does not start with "An error occurred while generating the build script."

I hit the following error on Travis arm64 build when running another build in parallel.
The job did not start with the error message.

Here is the.travis.yml file.

https://travis-ci.com/github/junaruga/ruby/jobs/506962115

An error occurred while generating the build script.

Here are other jobs for the error.

Thanks.

Same error on pypa/cibuildwheel job
The error is random. Restarting the build works.

Yes, restarting the build works. But it’s not an ideal behavior as a CI.

You’re obviously right. What I was trying to say is that the configs are valid and that the error is random and purely on Travis CI side since restarting the build works (i.e. same config, same commit). It’s not an ideal behavior as a CI indeed !

I just had 5 out of 9 jobs fail this way:
