    Sorry, it probably relates to the filesize. If your connection is patchy or if the server has any issues at the time, which becomes more and more probable the longer the upload takes, you will get an error like this. 

    Consider either A) breaking the file apart into smaller essential and non-essential archives, B) uploading to google cloud and just including a small ZIP with the URL and install instructions or C) finding a very reliable high speed connection (>10mbps upstream, ethernet) and trying again.

    Is this constantly happening to you?
    If not, it might be a temporary issue back then. Try refreshing the page and see if it works.
