Failing to deploy from Github Actions

I wrote a simple Github Actions workflow to deploy to

    name: Deploy to
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - uses: actions/checkout@v3
      - uses: superfly/flyctl-actions/setup-flyctl@master
      - run: flyctl deploy --remote-only -c deploy/fly.staging.toml
          FLY_API_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.FLY_API_TOKEN }}

The workflow run consistently fails with the following error message:

Error failed to fetch an image or build from source: error rendering push status stream: unauthorized: not allowed

Deploying locally with the same command (even the same API key) works just fine. What could be the issue here?

What happens before that log line? Is the app = "<name>" in fly.staging.toml correct? That error looks like what happens when it tries to push to a non existent app repository.

Yes the name is correct, I also use the same fly.staging.toml for local deployment and it works fine there. Here are some more log lines before the failure:

Update: I re-issued a new API token and set it in Github Action secrets. It works now! I might have accidentally pasted a trailing newline or so when I entered the API token the last time.

Thanks for your support.
