my python27 app deployment is failing for some reasons:

You can close this window now.

How can I debug that?
Thanks,

Best Solution

Just recording my experience in this related question.

I got a 'Client Error 400/unspecified reason' because my app.yaml error handlers were pointing to files in a static directory.

I moved the error files to a separate directory and updated app.yaml paths.

Update worked properly.
