Every time, I’m getting these error, every time. Same as before. Is there any posibility to fix this error?

Tried:

  1. I tried create netlify.toml and fill inside the file to Hugo commands.
  2. I tried to use environment variable section in Build & Deploy. (Added to variable HUGO_VERSION)

I’m using Hugo v0.55.6/extended version.

Thank you.

I’m a little confused. The repository you’re building from doesn’t have a hugo site source in it. I’m not exactly sure what these lines mean…

9:31:17 PM: Error running command: Build script returned non-zero exit code: 255
9:31:17 PM: failed during stage 'building site': Build script returned non-zero exit code: 255

but I’m guessing it’s hugo throwing an error because it can’t find a valid directory config.toml and directory structure to build the site.

i’m getting the same error.

my repo link, it has the errorlog.md file

https://github.com/TenSketch/mysite

kindly let me know what is the issue

If it’s the same error, the same fix is needed :slight_smile: I see that you got your builds working in the meantime so I guess you figured that out?

In the future please start with a link to your build logs like https://app.netlify.com/sites/tensketch/deploys/5d6643b0300b22000830520a so our community can provide the best help for you.

Hi,

I have the same issue, I have applied the suggested method but it is not working on my end:

Theme: https://themes.gohugo.io/hugonews/

Log: https://app.netlify.com/sites/brightinme/deploys/5dc40aee5b0dc6000a37c6c0

Hi @wasim, it looks like your build is failing due to the hugo version being less than 0.57.0. You’ll want to follow the steps described in our documentation on common configurations to set the correct Hugo version for your build.
