TeamCity 8.0.5 (build 27692) hangs on updating sources from Git


I think my problem is related to the one described in

Anyway, I have one particular repo that hangs the build on updating sources:

[13:02:14]Checking for changes
[13:02:16]Publishing internal artifacts
[13:02:16]Clearing temporary directory: /opt/TeamCity/buildAgent/temp/buildTmp
[13:02:16]Checkout directory: /opt/TeamCity/buildAgent/work/c858235d8df0476e
[13:02:16]Updating sources: server side checkout (running for 29m:17s)
[13:02:16][Updating sources] Will perform clean checkout. Reason: Agent doesn't have any version of the project sources
[13:02:16][Updating sources] Transferring cached clean patch for VCS root: REPO-NAME
[13:02:19][Updating sources] Building incremental patch over the cached patch

One thing that I have also noticed is that when I go to http://teamcity/admin/admin.html?item=diagnostics&tab=properties
there's nothing listed under "File properties (from

I've run out of ideas, especially that I can't find anything specific in the logs.
