Appveyor intermittent deployment issue

When using the Deployment Agent we're seeing an occasional issue where deployments do not happen correctly. Normally if we look at the Event Viewer we see the following entries:
- Deployment job started: ae0hj72k64w7u357 - Deployment order: mikebrace-website- - Downloading artifact (26,855,392 bytes) to C:\Windows\TEMP\3e1csxho.e1d\ - Deployment job started: o4y7fj99knh6q9wc

What we see sometimes is that the download line is missing and the website fails to get updated. Do you have pointers on how to resolve this or debug it further?

    Are you using the latest deployment agent?
    Can you share a screenshot of your deployment environment settings (with any secrets obscured)?

    Hi Owen,

    When we boot the server we install the latest version of the deployment agent from so that should be OK.

    Environment settings are as attached.

    Don't be insulted by the question but... you are certain that there is an artifact existing for the build you are deploying?
    Do you deploy manually or inline?
