Does GitHub Action no longer allow pushes using github-actions bot?

A GitHub Action I used to push changes towards the gh-pages branch seems to no longer work after it did for weeks, so I was wondering if GitHub changed the repo system for actions.

 

The code in general is this:

    - name: Deploy Files
      run: |
        git config user.name "github-actions[bot]"
        git config user.email "41898282+github-actions[bot]@users.noreply.github.com"
        git remote add gh-token "https://github.com/Andre601/JDA-Wiki.git"
        git fetch gh-token && git fetch gh-token gh-pages:gh-pages
        python -m mkdocs gh-deploy --clean --remote-name gh-token
        git push gh-token gh-pages

The action seems to work up to the last line, which is failing.

This means that MkDocs, which I use for building and deploying docs, is pushing the changes to the gh-pages branch, but then pushing the files towards the gh-pages branch no longer works.

 

As mentioned did it work for the past weeks and just now stoped working.

I receive these specific errors in the logs:

remote: Permission to Andre601/JDA-Wiki.git denied to github-actions[bot].
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/Andre601/JDA-Wiki.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403
##[error]Process completed with exit code 128.

I'm really lost about what exactly is happening here and would love some clarification.

This seems to probably be an issue related to a status issue on GitHub:

Hi,

I have the same issue when pushing within my GitHub action here:

Is it real that the GitHub Actions are offline (or degraded) now since 9 hours? 😑

 

I have the same issues. And on new projects I'm not able to run any action.

Hi @Andre601 ,

 

I copied your code and confirmed it's working now, the issue should be caused by the incident and it has been fixed.

Please kindly try again.

 

Thanks.
