The LFS objects download list couldn't be imported. Error: Bad Gateway

Hi there,
We’ve been running GitLab as our CI tool with 3 dedicated Google Compute Engine servers. The runners are executed as shell commands. Our workflow is:

  • developers commit to Github repo
  • GitLab updates its repository via the Mirror feature
  • GitLab kicks off CI build process with new commit

Our Github repo has some large files so we run git lfs pull in our Gitlab runners scripts. Our Gitlab repo seems to be mirroring and updating each commit successfully, however we have the following error:

The LFS objects download list couldn't be imported. Error: Bad Gateway

Any idea how to fix this error? I started seeing this error since Monday, May 6th, 2019. Did something change then?

The way we solved this issue was disabling the git lfs feature on the repo.
