Spin up environment not consistent

I’m very new to CircleCI. So hopefully this is an easy fix.

Basically, whenever I see "machine-agent version … (image: “circleci/classic: …”, there’s a failure later in one of the following steps.

However, whenever I see “Build-agent version …”, there’s no issue. Is there a way to always go with “Build-agent”?


Hi @kmaloneregistria,

We are in the process of rolling out changes to how our machine executor jobs are provisioned, and this may be why you are seeing different outputs in the Spin up environment step.

My first suggestion would be to switch to a newer machine image as the circleci/classic image (specifying machine:true will use an older image) is deprecated and is scheduled to be removed (there should be a notice in the UI). There is a list of 20.04 images on the following page:

CircleCI Developer - Machine Imagesubuntu-2004 - CircleCI

If updating the image does not resolve the errors you are seeing, I would ask that you open a support ticket at https://support.circleci.com/hc/en-us/requests/new, or share a link to one of your failing builds here so that we can take a deeper look.

Thank you!
