Custom Images Status Pending

I am uploading a Kali_Linux_2021.4.vdi to my Custom Images section in my control Panel, but as it seems that it is showing its status as Pending, I have been waiting for half an hour, the Image is uploaded on an other Droplet in the same region. I have No Idea why is this happening, do you guys have any suggestions, and yes I mv’ed the name of the .vdi could that be the reason or is it just some thing from digital ocean itself. Any Suggestions from you guys will be appreciated …

Do you have updates on this?

I’m having the exact problem here and it’s been about an hour with pending status. did anybody manage to solve this issue?

I’m having the exact same issue. I uploaded a compressed Kali Linux image (The documentation says this is ok, and it’s faster than uploading an uncompressed version). Even with it compressed it took a while to upload, and now it just says status pending
