Space Gradio app unable to download public model

Space Link


Hello HF team,

My Gradio space referenced in the link has been working fine for a few weeks. However this morning it started erroring with the message below without any code changes on my end that I can think of. The model it fails to download is public and has been working fine previously.

Could you please advise what I need to do to fix it:

hi @ivelin,

I’ve just duplicated and tested your Space, the caching error is not happening anymore, Could you please try to Factory reboot your Space?
We were experiencing infra outage, I’m not sure if this is related.
