AWS pipeline deployments failing


Full article


I recently migrated to Ubuntu 18.04 and I noticed that there is a known bug on the AWS Pipeline, sometimes it gives errors when deploying.

Type of Errors:

  • Directory not empty @ dir_s_rmdir

Solution: Run the command below to remove all *-cleanup (the cleanup keeps a history of your previous installation, so it can know which file was changed)

sudo rm -rf /opt/codedeploy-agent/deployment-root/deployment-instructions/*-cleanup
  • The overall deployment failed because too many individual instances failed deployment, too few healthy instances are available for deployment, or some instances in your deployment group are experiencing problems.

Solution: In my case I found I had an errror in the appspec.yml

Once you run the pipeline again, the file is going to be created again.

This is the official report
