Error performing token check: failed to persist salt: cannot write to readonly storage

I’m getting this error message everytime I run my pipelines in gitlab.
Error: failed to lookup token, err= Error making API request
URL: GET https://internaladdress.com/v1/auth/token/lookup-self
Code: 500. Errors:

  • error performing token check: failed to persist salt: cannot write to readonly storage

This was intermittent, it would fail and we would run the job again and it would work. This has got progressively worse and now every time we run the pipeline we get this error.
