"Create from template" function for Gatsby results in error on GitLab Pages

I am trying to create a new Gatsby project using the “Create from template” tab at https://gitlab.com/projects/new, but every time that I try, I get an error saying:

The repository could not be imported.
Error importing repository into user/projectname-gatsby - No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen - [FILTERED]

Details and troubleshooting:

  • I’m using GitLab.com (not self-hosted)
  • I deleted the project and tried again: same error
  • I tried creating a Hugo project from template and it worked without problems

How do I proceed or fix this bug?

Edit: Here’s a screenshot.

Still having this issue, 18 days later. Anyone have any suggestions?
