Took me quite a while to figure it out, so I wanted to share and hopefully this could get fixed.
For my project, using
fly deploy fails with an error message that doesn’t help much. I put the error message below. (takes like 2 secs to fail)
I finally figured out that maybe it could be because in my Ubuntu 22.04 terminal, I use a symlink to reach my project’s directory.
Sure enough, when I went to the actual directory without symlinks in the path,
fly deploy worked!
Hopefully this can be fixed from fly.io’s side
Leaving this here in case someone searches for parts of the error message, it may help them.
