Source branch does not exist. Please restore it or use a different source branch

Hi,

Since this morning gitlab.com does not detect new pushes.
Branch is visible in repository, but merge request displays: “source branch does not exist. Please restore it or use a different source branch”.
We can do manual merge, but it does not trigger pipeline.
However, pipeline can be started manually and runs on latest code.
Problem is present on all of our projects.

Any ideas ?

Thanks!

Hello,
Have the same problems,
all activities displays with huge delay (more than hour).
When I push a new branch, I can see it only while merge request creating, but i can do merge request because of “branch doesn’t exists”.

I hope problem is in work.
Thanks.
