We have run into what is basically a showstopper for us in deploying one of our products.
I refer to a question I asked a while back related to this, though it doesn’t have much bearing on the issue:
We are pushing large (3GB) tar.gz packages into Octopus via the new Package api from a Linux script/command line (using curl). This completes without issue (takes about 5 minutes).
When we try to deploy the same package to another Linux server with a Deploy Package step, we get the following error:
| == Failed: Deploy Models release 0.0.55 to QAT == 11:19:24 Verbose | Guided failure is not enabled for this task 11:19:51 Fatal | The deployment failed because one or more steps failed.
