First time using Terraform Cloud: Preparing the remote plan never completes

It’s my first try using Terraform Cloud. I had use terraform “local” to deploy (3 ec2 instanes, alb, dns records and acm certificate) and then I decided to try Terraform Cloud. So I changed the backend, run terraform init, and it seems that the state is now on Terraform Cloud.

On my first “terraform plan” I got some errors which I attributed to changes in 13.0. I’m using 0.12.29 locally and configured Terraform workspace setting to use the same.

But when I try “terraform plan” again, it just says “Preparing the remote plan…” and it never progresses.

In the Terraform Cloud UI it justs says “Waiting for configuration”

This is the output of the command after enable logs with export TF_LOG=TRACE:
