Stuck release command

Hey team,

We have tried to run multiple releases in the last hour or so and they all stay stuck right at the beginning:

==> Creating release
--> release v576 created

--> You can detach the terminal anytime without stopping the deployment
==> Release command detected: /app/bin/homer eval Homer.Release.migrate
--> This release will not be available until the release command succeeds.

I don’t see any incident related to this issue on the status page. Could you help us out?

This is happening on two of our applications, bitter-wave-3155 and shy-wind-3844.


Not sure if it’s the same issue but I’ve got a release that seems to be stuck, too: Simplify how to find the next form step · PREreview/ · GitHub successfully deployed to the prereview app, but the new release for the prereview-sandbox app (v188) seems to be stuck. GitHub Actions isn’t showing me any output; the dashboard is showing me the same as running flyctl status:

Deployment Status
  ID          = af5ce42a-f807-4003-c21d-9c021db6234c         
  Version     = v188                                         
  Status      = running                                      
  Description = Deployment is running                        
  Instances   = 1 desired, 0 placed, 0 healthy, 0 unhealthy  

I can’t see a way to see the logs from the failing deployment (only the logs from the running v187 instance).

It’s been stuck for over an hour now. I’ve left the GitHub action running, but can probably safely cancel that. I assume that won’t cancel the release itself, though. I can’t see an option to do that, either.

For anyone that would stumble upon this, there is now an incident tracking this issue: Status - Some apps failing to deploy


After 4h 6m 53s, my GitHub actions job succeeded as the new release deployed. :slightly_smiling_face:
