Artifacts invalid on download

We have recently resolved an issue where packages installs would return the error:

✗✗✗ stream did not contain valid UTF-8

If you encounter this you should:

  • destroy the studio you’re currently in


  • remove the local package cache (/hab/cache/artifacts and ~/.hab/cache/artifacts)

This will basically reset you to a clean state and you should be good. If you run into any issues, please drop a help post in the forums.
