Within the last hour we’ve started seeing this on all builds for GitHub - pyca/cryptography: cryptography is a package designed to expose cryptographic primitives and recipes to Python developers.

Hi. We’ve also had this issue for a couple of days at GitHub - python-telegram-bot/python-telegram-bot: We have made you a wrapper you can't refuse. However, not all comits are affected, if they are it’s not always all builds & sometimes re-running the jobs helps.

I’m still getting this error today in our org.

Looks like it’s a common issue that happens from time to time: sometimes after fail I do a rerun, and it works (sometimes several reruns are needed).

It seems to be working now. ¯\(ツ)

Hi all, this was an issue the past few days that we were tracking here. I apologize that we weren’t more transparent with it, but we believe the issue to be resolved now.

It fails again with the same issue

@AenBleidd could you open a new ticket with your issue in particular? I could use some more details to debug what’s going on for you.
