I don't know what to do with this error: "Failed to load all assets"

  • Managed workflow
  • Version: eas-cli/2.5.1 darwin-x64 node-v16.17.1

I am upgrading from expo publish to eas update. I made a development build using ‘eas build’ and that works fine connected to the expo running on my mac. I ran ‘eas update’ and that succeeded with no errors. When I open the update on my phone (i.e. by scanning the QR code on the update) it loads on the app and displays a page which says “There was a problem loading the project. This development build encountered the following error: Failed to load app from … with error: Failed to load all assets”

Is there some way to figure out what asset it cannot load? There is no clue provided in the app or during any of the build processes. I am at a loss on how to proceed.


Hi @philipbeber,

Did this incident happen recently? Can you please share the link to either the build or the updates URL? It would help us check internally if something unusual happened.

I’d also suggest pushing another update so that it will reupload assets if any asset might have been missed during the initial upload, it will upload again.
