Here's the entire log of an example stack update I attempt creating a lambda
I think what happens is there's a retry timeout of 1 minute here and since it takes more than 1 minute to create the lambda, there's one retry attempt that runs the create function routine again, which leads to the error. A simple solution would be to increase the timeout to at least the timeout of the AWS API call IMHO
OK I solved the issue by moving all the node_modules into a lambda layer, so now the CreateFunction for a lambda finishes much faster, so I don't hit the timeout bug
