images are not accessible via UI when uploaded via Actions


I use the following action to upload the Docker image to the registry:

      - name: Push to GitHub Container Registry
        uses: docker/build-push-action@v1
          dockerfile: nginx.Dockerfile
          username: ${{ }}
          password: ${{ secrets.GHCR_PAT }}
          repository: plutzilla/
          tag_with_ref: true

The image is pushed (and can be pulled using the same PAT), but cannot be accessed via UI:

Hence, it is not possible to manage the package (set permissions, delete etc.).

FYI, authenticated GraphQL query does not return GHCR packages at all:

query {
  user(login: "plutzilla") {
    packages(first: 10) {
      nodes {
        latestVersion { version }

returns only repository-based packages.

Thanks for your feedback.
Could you please check the workflow log to confirm again whether you pushed this image successfully?
If you have successfully pushed, please click your profile photo in the top right corner of GitHub, then click Your profile >> Packages to check if your image exists in the packages list.
More about Managing container images with GitHub Container Registry please refer here.

Hi @niconbw,
thanks for your response.

I can see the GHCR packages in the profile package list, however the package count is wrong in the top navigation bar and in the package list:

The images are built and pushed successfully via Actions. See the log excerpt:

Clicking on the package in the package list returns 404 page.

The package which pas pushed from desktop, is accessible via UI.

Hi @plutzilla
About package count issue:
I found a similar post mentioning this issue, and the GitHub engineering team is already aware of this, you can keep track of this issue via the link above.

About 404 error:
Do you also get a 404 error when you click on your first image(lescinskas.It) in your screenshot?
Tested in my side, I found that if the package name contains dot(.) character, it will cause this problem. You could try other names that do not contain a dot.

Thank you. The issue is indeed in the dot character in the image name - not related to the Github Actions.

FYI created the topic in the Github Packages category: GHCR images having dot in the name are not accessible in UI
