Netlify deploys stuck on "starting up"


My deploys have been recenly badly slow

and now not even starting and I’m getting scared that I will lose all my build minutes

Cannot even cancel it… it sucks, how do I fix it?

The stuck deploy: Netlify App
My domain:
My netlify subdomain:


Now I see

10:02:34 PM: Build ready to start
10:02:37 PM: build-image version: 122b31996ccaffd45d820a452d6227f8312110cc (focal)
10:02:37 PM: build-image tag: v4.5.3
10:02:37 PM: buildbot version: 7eafb394e33f42f945c880ce4ac17c149867813a
10:02:37 PM: API communication error. Canceling build.
10:02:37 PM: Finished processing build request in 116.503597ms

But the deploy is still going

update 2

Managed to cancel it, though I think the core
issue should still be addressed as it keeps happening

Hey there, @B00bleaTea :wave:

Thanks so much for reaching out about this. We have rolled back the change that caused this issue to happen. I see your builds are now working successfully!

Let me know if you have any further questions.


Yep now the deploys seem to go well :slight_smile:
Thank you <3
