GitHub server does not support configuring a self-hosted runner with 'DisableUpdate' flag.

See original GitHub issue

Trying to use this library with my GHE resulted in the following error message:

The GitHub server does not support configuring a self-hosted runner with 'DisableUpdate' flag.

I’m using the codebuild provider and narrowed it down to the –disableupdate flag.

I’m new to this whole topic, but removing it from by buildspec manually resolved the issue. I’m guessing that the flag might even be irrelevant anyways since the runners are ephemeral?

What are the impacts of removing that flag? could we make it optional?

I haven’t had much time to start making the changes this weekend. i’ve just had time here and there to validate your other fixes. I don’t think i’ve ever seen someone maintaining a repo turn around my issues so fast! You are amazing!

If you are wanting to just bust this issue out too, go for it. i probably wont be able to start until tomorrow.

Side note: i was able to validate the docker changes from the other issue. I’m able to successfully run my job now!

Thanks! 😁 It’s my current passion project and it makes me happy to see bug reports come in because that’s how I know people actually use it.
