Failed to cancel check suite.

I have multiple jobs now that I can't cancel. Now when I "push" the Actions are not fired. 

Is it possible set a timeout on the container or manually stop the container?

Re: Failed to cancel check suite.

I'm seeing this as well - when using `mxschmitt/action-tmate` in an action, a pause results in the whole workflow coming to a halt and becoming unkillable.


Same thing happens with long running build steps. In one, I have an 8 minute build which after completion the entire job hangs.


Hitting cancel on those fails every time.

Re: Failed to cancel check suite.

We're having the same issue.


The oldest job has been running since Wednesday and failed with:


- There was an unexpected error when executing this Action. For help debugging what went wrong, please contact The unique ID for this error is 890D:3CAB:AED3:1E6C3:5D8BC16D


We've contacted support as directed, but still haven't received a response.

Re: Failed to cancel check suite.

I'm having a similar issue with this test run:



After about 2 hours, I tried again and was able to successfully cancel the check.

The output shows that the operation completed successfully, but no concecutive tests were run. I hadn't seen this happen before this run, and I haven't seen it since, with no changes to the step or anything before it (I've been working on a build step that occurs after the step that got stuck).

Re: Failed to cancel check suite.

I have a similar problem although in my case the workflow is 8 days old. Presumed it would be cancel eventually but no: Checking it now it is still "running". Before I didn't get an error message though but just a message informing me that I requested a cancellation (by then it has already actually completed, just not registered as completed). But I see now that the interface has changed so this is maybe part of the improvement.


Anyway: It would be nice if one could get a more informative error message then "Failed to cancel check suite." somehow but that is all I get. If anyone has any information on how to do this please post it.
