Broken / Unusable Cache after commenting out a Cache item

I wanted to comment out a Cache item, but accidentally commented out the name only (not the whole item):

After doing so, the subsequent build failed at the end with Saving "" to the build cache...The argument must not be empty string.:

So I removed the cache item completey:

However, since then, I can not use the cache anymore. Whenever the cache: entry is present in the appveyor.yml file the build fails early right before the install phase with The given key was not present in the dictionary.:
See and following

    Will take a look. For now I've just reset the cache for that project.

    Hi Feodor,


    Would you mind resetting it for this account / project as well?

    (I'm using it with the 14 day hyperv trial to compare against the free one)
