We have been using Github Classroom since November 2020. This worked fine, until recently, students have been complaining that they are not able to accept assignments. When following the link they get the following error:
You accepted the assignment, assignment10 but something went wrong. We have not received any updates for this assignment. You may want to reaccept the assignment.
We were able to reproduce this issue when trying to accept the assignment ourselves.
On closer inspection, the repository assignment10-teamA does get created, however, the students do not get access to it, and the teams do not show up as having accepted in the assignment. When re-accepting the assignment, they get the same error, and further repositories assignment10-teamA-1, assignment10-teamA-2, etc. get created, none of which can be accessed by the student.
This also happens for older assignments that used to work fine. Also, the issue seems of a temporary nature: It was first reported on 22. Jan 2021, 09:48 am and disappeared again 12 hours later. Now it is back.
Has anyone experienced a similar issue, or does anyone know what may cause it and how to resolve it?
