Dependency failing to download only in Docker image

I am installing dependencies for a mobile app built in React Native and my build jobs have recently started failing this morning out of no where only on the android branch.

resource_class: large
working_directory: ~/project/android
  - image: circleci/android:api-27-node
  - checkout:
      path: ~/project
  - run: yarn

There is a post install script in our electron dependency that downloads a zip. This works fine on the iOS job running on macOS, but as of ~8 hours ago began failing with the output below.

I sshed into the machine and can use wget to download the zip file just fine. Is there something I’m missing about why a script to download a zip would respond with a 403 from the docker image, but not the mac machine?

error /home/circleci/project/node_modules/electron: Command failed.
Exit code: 1
Command: node install.js
Directory: /home/circleci/project/node_modules/electron
  throw err

We’re getting the same thing. But it’s not in a docker image. We can replicate it 100% of the time by running npm install react-devtools. This started happening on the morning of March 28

it’s working now… an update from the circleci team would be nice…

Do you mean from your local computer?

Sorry for the delay in responding. We believe this was caused by some silent rate limiting on GitHub, but we can’t confirm. Glad to hear it is fixed.
