Build and deploy Node.js app to Azure Web App

Constant failures since Tuesday afternoon in running Actions. Same error every time.
Have tried creating new actions, deploying from last known working branch, resetting the publish profile , changing the secrets and all return the same errors.

Initially it didnt like a .gitkeep file and then I attempted to exclude this file and others files from the “Upload Artefact for deployment job”. That has allowed me to progress further through the upload but its finding another file to complain about.
The below is the error I am receiving.

Error: Unexpected response. Unable to upload chunk to https://pipelines.actions.githubusercontent.com/UA11GcAcweLTjdFtA6iGxHgouUcCHKZTSRifrBoJUZyLm7dxmx/_apis/resources/Containers/1464343?itemPath=node-app%5Cnode_modules%5Cmime%5C.npmignore
