Failed job is cancelled but keeps running

Seeing a case where a project with two matrix runs had one fail. Then I cancelled the build so the other would not run. The job is marked as "cancelling" but appears to keep on running and the other is still queued.

Any ideas for how to get these jobs unstuck?

    Something is going on Azure right now. I'm looking into that.

    All good now. I still had backed up jobs that started within the last few hours, but cancelling them all and pushing new commits now fixed things. One suggestion: the list of previous jobs on a page like is limited to the last 10 jobs. In my case I had stuck jobs that needed cancelled that were not visible. I worked around this by going to the projects view ( where the still running/stuck jobs did show up and I could cancel them there. My suggestion would be to have the history page to at least the last 20 jobs, or maybe the last N jobs + at the bottom the first jobs in the queue still running. That way you could cancel the first, refesh the page, and eventually be able to nuke them all.

    There is ellipsis button at the bottom of the list loading more records.

    Aha! Thanks, I would have never noticed that without the hint.
