Cache Service Unavailable

I am trying to enable caching for our project with:

  - .nuget -> **.sln, **.csproj  # preserve nuget folder (packages) unless the solution or projects change

before_build: - nuget restore myapp.sln

I have also enabled: Save build cache in Pull Requests for our project.

However, rebuilding the PR with the yaml cache change, I get:

Unable to load build cache items - skipping cache restore
Error making request with Error Code ServiceUnavailable and Http Status Code ServiceUnavailable. No further error information was returned by the service.

Any advice?

    Is this an error you hit consistently?

    Hi Owen,

    it was happening consistently on Friday, but I just tried again and the service seems to work now. I can now debug why .nuget does not work (fails to find it in c:\projects\repo).

    It seems to use the global path C:\Users\appveyor.nuget instead, so I will try '%USERPROFILE%.nuget. But the service does work now.
