Cannot push changes if status set to running


W10, PsychoPy version 2022.1.3.

This is for a newly created exp (it’s very minimal), fresh install of psychopy under W10.

As per title, once I set the status to running, I cannot push changes any more regardless if I change the status or not - in my case just adding a single image.

Things I’ve tried but didn’t work:

  1. moved experimental only files to different folder and tried again. The error occurs only when I make a single change otherwise I can push and run the exp online without issues
  2. ensured that I am logged in to psychopy
  3. deleted files such as project.json, userPrefs.cfg, users.cfg
  4. I do not have any subfolders, multiple .psyexp, multiple gits e.t.c.

I get the following error (bold and other formatting not my doing):
P.S. is possible for the admins to let discourse to accept .txt files as attachments? It only makes sense if the backtrace error is saved by default as .txt in PsychoPy.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
UPDATE: the error does not occur with an older version of Psychopy (2021.1.4). Pushes changes and runs without issues.
