Bug Description

Flightgear is a large snap successfully built in build.snapcraft.io but has never successfully published to the store. The uploads typically report "Store upload failed" in launchpad.

Here's two examples.


The source for the snap is at


It's large (1.9GB) due to it containing a bunch of assets for the game. Not sure I can trim it down much. This is not abnormal - the typical debs from the archive are similar (larger) disk footprint.

<popey> I don't believe it's the upload that fails, it's some post processing, because it sits at 99% then barfs

We should probably take a look at disk/memory use and timeouts on the review tools celery jobs. It could be that unpacking and repacking 1.9GB is just too big or taking too long.

Yeah I tried it too and I agree with Simon Davy. It just gives up at 99%

build.snapcraft.io upload of big snaps (1.9GB) are now working, we applied some config changes to the storage service and this should be now resolved, please re-open if you hit it again.
