Gitlab runner "shell" executor cannot upload artifacts

When using a "shell" executor with gitlab-runner you may run into the following errors, when trying to upload artifacts to Gitlab.

ERROR: Uploading artifacts as "archive" to coordinator... error error=couldn't execute POST against Post proxyconnect tcp: tls: first record does not look like a TLS handshake

The issue here is that your "gitlab-runner" user account has picked up a http proxy configuration that's not sitting well with it.

In my homelab, the proxy settings are configured for all users using Ansible, through "/etc/profile". For the "gitlab-runner" user that apparently may be problematic when trying to talk to the internal Gitlab server. Quick and dirty work-around: unset the proxy settings from your environment.

echo "unset http_proxy; unset https_proxy" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "unset http_proxy; unset https_proxy" >> ~/.profile tags: , ,
