Help running ssh console command

I am trying to run a console command using flyctl ssh console -C "npm run setup-db" but its just hanging with the message “Updating your Volta directory. This may take a few moments…” – any idea how to fix this? It was working fine a couple weeks ago.

tried to restart the instance and do it again?

flyctl apps restart [APPNAME]

Thanks - I’ve restarted, redeployed and tried completely deleting the app and trying again - still hanging on “Updating your Volta directory :confused:” – I’ve also updated to the newest version of the CLI tool.

same here…

Trying to ssh and running any node command fails trying to update volta.

Having the same issue. Console is hanging on

Updating your Volta directory. This may take a few moments...

I’ve also scaled up to 2GB RAM. No luck.

I solved this problem by adding a volta key in my package.json and specifying the node version (making sure it’s the same version specified in the generated Dockerfile):

    "volta": {
      "node": "12.16.1"

no idea why this works though! if anyone has an explanation, I’d love to know :slight_smile:
