Hey there, are you getting a specific error after Status: Image is up to date for heroku/heroku:20-cnb or is the deployment just stalling out there and not continuing further?

Hi, the deployment was stalling at that stage. i was able to solve the issue by running this command flyctl wireguard websockets enable after running that command i was able deploy without any issues.
