I have replied in the thread as external e-mail in Broadridge is delayed and attachments are not possible.
It looks like next step fails to capture the success of the approval step. After 5-10 seconds it will display “failed” status.
Clicking “retry” and re-approving solves the problem but the number of failures seems random to me.
We have on premises Octopus 4.1.9 licensed.
