Bamboo export fails

Hello community!


My bamboo instance fails to export (and thus fails the automatic backup).

I found the following error in the log files:

< - some git commits ->

2710200 Squashed 'system/' changes from 74915e9..44b0123

git-subtree-dir: system

git-subtree-split: 954d0c07c07bb6756a4a6373b1eef269f1cb1326,revisionKey=com.atlassian.bamboo.deployments.versions.persistence.commits.MutableDeploymentVersionVcsChangesetImpl@3a10024]

at org.codehaus.staxmate.out.SMOutputContext.writeCharacters(

at org.codehaus.staxmate.out.SMOutputContainer.addCharacters(

at com.atlassian.bamboo.migration.SMOutputElementAppender.append(



Does somebody have an idea how to address this error?
Thank you!
