Unable to start workspace

Hi I am unable to start a new workspace.

  1. From my dashboard, if I attempt to open an existing workspace, I get the error: “cannot initialize workspace: cannot initialize workspace: exit status 1”
  2. If I try to launch a new workspace from my Github, I get the same error as well
  3. The error in the consoles are:

The repository that I am having issues with is: GitHub - kunxin-chor/tgc15-express
Many other repositories are having the same issues as well.

It’s an ongoing issue for the US clusters. See Gitpod Status - Elevated errors starting workspaces in the US region

As a temporary workaround you could use a VPN and connect to UK, so that gitpod picks EU clusters for your workspaces.
