"Context canceled" when building images for Docker

For two days now, I'm experiencing very frequent "context canceled" errors on AppVeyor when I try to build a Docker container. Specifically, it happens when I pull docker images (like mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/sdk:7.0.305-bullseye-slim-amd64).

The issue appears to happen intermittently. Sometimes a build gets through successfully. I'm also noticing that it happens during the workday (Europe), but not during the evening. This makes me think there may be some kind of throttling going on.
