"Could not ensure that workspace directory exists"

I am using CircleCI in order to build a Unity project. The build works, but I am trying to make use of the github-release orb in order to create a release on GitHub for the build. I have created a new separate job for this, so I needed to share data between the jobs. I am using persist_to_workspace in order to do that, as specified in the documentation, but the solution doesn’t seem to work - I get the following error: “Could not ensure that workspace directory /root/project/Zipped exists”.

For the workspace persist logic, I’ve added the following lines of code in my config.yml file:

  • working_directory: /root/project - Inside the executor of the main job
  • persist_to_workspace - As a last command inside my main job’s steps
  • attach_workspace - As a beginning command inside my second job’s steps

Here’s my full config.yml file:

  build:
    jobs:

      - release:

Can somebody help me with this please?
