Github actions is broken for open source repos - secrets not loading

In my job, we are using github actions. We are a “team” account. We do not make use of github action environments.

For a personal project, I’m using github actions.

The secrets are not being loaded into the runner!!! They are definitely blank. No asterisks to show there is a value. Any action I use throws errors consistent with the secret not being set.

I added the secret as “repository secret”, also as “environment secret”. I tried it each way. I then tried it together. Nothing.
