GitLab CI immediately passes without running anything on self hosted instance

No matter what I try, my GitLab CI pipelines aren’t completing properly on my self-hosted instance, but does work on

Even something as simple as the following doesn’t work:

image: node:latest

    - node_modules/

    - echo "hello world";

On my self-hosted instance, this returns:

Running with gitlab-runner 11.3.1 (0aa5179e)
  on gitlab 39ddf575
Job succeeded

And on this returns:

Any help in getting this figured out would be immensely appreciated.

Wow, think I figured it out. I had modified the settings for the runner to use docker instead of shell, and apparently that broke something. I set up a new runner and it appears to be working (tentatively).
