actions/setup-node@v1 ramdomly failing with 'Unexpected HTTP response: 500'

We have been encountering random failures across all branches / PRs where the setup-node action fails with ‘Unexpected HTTP response: 500’ and it does not seem to be related to any changes made by us (none of them would affect all branches).

Is anybody else encountering this?

Hi @marikaner,

Yes, details are here: https://github.com/actions/setup-node/issues/132.

Nodejs.org has been having an outage, and the Action relies on a download from there. We’re working on a way to insulate Actions from this problem in the future.
