I keep getting this after a failed pulumi update that uses nested Pulumi components. The update will fail to create resources and deletes the parent resource without deleting the dependencies. This then causes subsequent update attempts to fail with that error

that’s a bug in Pulumi , unfortunately - what version of Pulumi are you using, and do you have a repro for this?
You can repair your stack by using https://pulumi.io/reference/cli/pulumi_state_delete.html to delete any resources from your checkpoint that the CLI is complaining about, but you will need to delete those resources manually (e.g. in your cloud provider’s console).

Yeah, it will be a bit tough to give an exact example to reproduce this but I’ll try to get to it this week.

thank you! let us know if we can help at all with getting your stack back into a good state, although this scenario is exactly what we had in mind when we created
pulumi state delete

hmm, whats the syntax for the resource item after
pulumi state delete
? using the full URN doesn’t work
