Git (even recent versions) hanging after “Resolving deltas: 100%”

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/29

If you ever come across git hanging after completing “Resolving deltas: 100%“, then remember this can still happen with recent git versions; the below output was with git version 2.24.1.windows.2.

C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
Cloning into 'bin'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 74, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (74/74), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (54/54), done.
remote: Total 1063 (delta 30), reused 39 (delta 15)
Receiving objects: 100% (1063/1063), 26.74 MiB | 516.00 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (385/385), done.

or (after pressing Ctrl-C):

C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
Cloning into 'bin'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 74, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (74/74), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (54/54), done.
remote: Total 1063 (delta 30), reused 39 (delta 15)
Receiving objects: 100% (1063/1063), 26.74 MiB | 516.00 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (385/385), done.
fatal: index-pack failed

Retry after a while

Sometimes this is as easy as waiting until the remote system comes to its senses. In this case, waiting some 8 hours resolved it:

C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
Cloning into 'bin'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 74, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (74/74), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (54/54), done.
remote: Total 1063 (delta 30), reused 39 (delta 15)
Receiving objects: 100% (1063/1063), 26.74 MiB | 748.00 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (385/385), done.

In my case this worked, even though GitLab did not show any problems in their status history: [WayBack] GitLab System Status History.

I waited (and succeeded) because of [WayBack] git – How to solve’fatal: index-pack failed’? – Stack Overflow.

Check the index and get the most recent
