Package fails to synchronize

Synchronization is where we extract the metadata and files withing a package, process them and make the package available for download. There are a few reasons why a package may fail to complete this process:

  • Incomplete or malformed package metadata
  • Corruption or errors in creating the package
  • A temporary problem with back-end package processing

In some cases, especially with a temporary problem with package processing, synchronizing the package may resolve the issue. For instructions, please see Package Resynchronization.

In the case of a corrupt package, or missing / incomplete metadata, resynchronizing the package will not resolve the issue. You would need to fix the problem with the package itself and then re-upload the package again.
