Unauthorized error on automated builds (for organization repositories)


I am trying to configure automated builds for a repository created within an organization, but I’m always getting the same error: unauthorized: incorrect username or password. This is somehow weird, as the error is always raised at the first FROM step of the Dockerfile, even if FROM points to a public image.

Here’s an example. I created a very simple Dockerfile in a github repository, configured it as an automated build, to no avail. This is the build log:

The same happens to me with other repositories. It always fails at the first FROM step.

Any ideas?

Note: this is not happening to me in repositories created in my individual account, the error only occurs in organization repositories.
