Whenever I have tried to deploy I am getting this error on the Aquire Package step, It seems to be a result of me trying to implement channels in a deployment project, but even after reverting im getting the same issue.
HI, we are having exactly the same issue here. It’s a big problem as we cannot deploy anymore.
Log from deployment:

I sent an email through to their support team and they have said it’s a bug from an update last night, and a fix should be going out in a few hours (for my instance at least), if it doesn’t resolve itself in a few hours maybe send them an email.
Like @david2 said, we have an updating being rolled out to instances that contains a fix for this issue.
If you can please send us an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org with the URL of your instance so I can double-check its upgrade schedule.
Thanks and sorry for the inconveniences,
