so... a weird thing happened.. killed a pulumi up command, the stack is backed by azure blob storage, and the stack disappeared from blob storage - i could only find the .json.bak version of the stack. After unsuccessfully downloading, renaming, and trying to upload it - I try re-creating the stack in pulumi cli (pulumi stack init..) and importing the .bak file (pulumi stack import --file).. I get this:
Copy code
λ pulumi stack import --file c:\tempstack\stage.k8s.deployment.json
error: could not deserialize deployment: unexpected end of JSON input
Any other hints on what to do? It's a 25mb stack..
