Workspace stuck on building image

I have been trying to access my workspace for over 30 minutes now and it just seems to be stuck on ‘Building Image’ (Attached a screenshot). I have tried logging in and out and restarting my browser but that hasn’t helped, not sure what to do about this.

Hi Zainab! Sorry about this, we’re currently investigating. I’ll keep you updated!

Happy Coding!

Here’s an update: Gitpod Status - Workspace image builds stopped working

Let me know if you’ve got any more issues!

Happy Coding!

Hi - I am having the same issue with just one of my workspaces only (screenshot attached). Is the solution still just to wait for 1h for the process to timeout?


I waited for about 12 hours and it was still stuck on building image, so I just started a new workspace again. If you give it a couple of hours it might work for you.


There are some unstaged changes saved in the workspace I would really like not to use so hopefully it works!

Does anyone from GitPod know why this is happening?
