Bamboo Error: Parent Directory Doesn't Exist for Branch Build

Tim_Wirtjes September 10, 2018

I get the following error for a branch based build. 

10-Sep-2018 20:21:23

{:timestamp=>"2018-09-10T20:21:23.941063+0000", :message=>"Parent directory does not exist: javelin2_0.3.3-1.20180910202123.bugfix - cannot write to javelin2_0.3.3-1.20180910202123.bugfix/CN-2152-javelin-is-unable-to-provision-vms_amd64.deb", :level=>:fatal}

All other parameters are the defaults. I've done alot of searching but am not able to find anything addressing this error.

Hey Tim,

Can you share with us were this error was observed and the set of steps taken to reproduce it?

Possible troubleshooting steps:

  1. Find differences between branches that work and this one.
  2. Clone this branch from outside Bamboo and verify if you will experience any error.
  3. If your repository is not that big, try to clean the repository cache: *Cog icon >> Overview >> Repository settings*.
  4. Try to navigate to that folder and check the permissions involved. Is the user running the agent/server able to edit that folder?

Please share with us your findings.
