How do I remove stale stacks that are in a weird state? These are stacks that were never deleted as something went wrong during testing and they were not cleaned up. For more context, I am using the integration testing set up using Golang.
Copy code
➜ vpc-builder (main) ✔ pulumi stack rm p-it-ny6j4r57fl-aep-base-i-1768dd0e
error: failed to decrypt: incorrect passphrase, please set PULUMI_CONFIG_PASSPHRASE to the correct passphrase or set PULUMI_CONFIG_PASSPHRASE_FILE to a file containing the passphrase
