TeamCity plugin 'Error from Octopus server: Unable to process response from server'

So i’m pretty puzzled I got this working last Thursday and haven’t looked at it since. However, with 4-5 projects working off the same server mine is the only one that isn’t working when I came in today.

Output is
[11:18:52][Octopus Deploy] Running command: octo.exe create-release --server http://okc2web5-od/ --apikey SECRET --project Titan Analytics --enableservicemessages --version 0.0.284 --deployto QA --progress --packageVersion=0.0.284

I don’t see any error log for my project in octopus deploy since it doesn’t finish making the release, and not sure where to find any logs for it outside the project. With an error like this I don’t even know where to start. Tried an updated API key and stuff like that to no avail.

Added the Team City build log & a screen shot of my team city config. Any ideas or assistance would be appreciated.

Hm, k another developer more experienced with this stuff then me figured it out. I changed the lifecycle since my project was going to have a couple more stages then his and as a result my ‘blank’ channel field no longer was compatible.

The error message for that to say the least was … not very accurate. However, adding the appropriate channel field made it work.
