An unexpected error occurred when uploading add-on descriptor


I have created a plugin with the descriptor here. I have tested this in my local instance and it works, but somehow when I'm uploading my descriptor to the market place, it throws an ambiguous "An unexpected error occurred" message. What am I missing here?

The descriptor is found here:

(in case I'll shut down the process hosting the app)

     "name": "Reports",
     "description": "Reporting tool for JIRA",
     "key": "reports-arc",
     "baseUrl": "",
     "authentication": {
        "type": "jwt"
     "lifecycle": {
        "installed": "/init"
     "version": "1.0",
     "modules": {
         "generalPages": [
                 "url": "/jira",
                 "key": "index",
                 "name": {
                     "value": "Reports"
     "scopes": [

Any movement on this? I'm seeing something similar - even though the plugin is installed I get errors. My guess is it's something to do with the baseUrl, but I can't prove it. The logs are no help either.
