`create-deployment` failing with 504 Gateway-timeout

Creating a deployment with the doctl cli is failing with a “504 Gateway-timeout” error. We are seeing this error on both github deploys and when we try to push images to It has been happening since September 22.

We are confident our authentication is working because doctl auth init outputs Validating token... OK.

Is there a larger outage or is this specific to our DigitalOcean account?

We are having the same issue, since the same date. It seems to work randomly

Having a similar issue, with a similar error but using managed gitlab runners in our own k8s cluster. docker login -u dokey -p dokey

Works in CI and from local machine.

docker push works from local machine, but fails from CI. The CI log is full of retrying in **X** seconds.

Is this a change made on the DO side?
