As easy as programming has become in recent years, some aspects can be quite difficult for beginners to understand. Not everything is about how you write code; how you share and store, it also matters, in addition to datasets you use to train models. 

In this article, we’re talking about the “Dataset push to hub not working” error, its causes and what you can do to fix the problem.

What causes the Dataset push to hub not working error? 

There can be several reasons why you’re experiencing this problem. Some common factors include:

  • You don’t have access to the database repository
  • Buggy push code
  • Internet connectivity or firewall issues 
  • Invalid login credentials during the push

How to fix the Dataset push to hub not working error?

Here are five fixes you can try out. 

Check your internet connection

This is a good time to check whether or not you have an active internet connection. If you’re on WiFi, make sure you’ve got an active link and that there are no signal issues. On cellular data, ensure it’s enabled and you’re getting good network coverage.

Restarting your router can help eliminate a bunch of seemingly random internet and connectivity issues that may be hindering your connection to The Hub’s servers. 

Check organisation permissions

If you’re pushing to an organisation’s or shared namespace, you need adequate permissions before you can start pushing your datasets. Check with the group administrator to see if you have the required level of access before trying to push your dataset again. 

Check login credentials

Entering invalid login credentials in the hugginggace-cli login command can also cause permission issues which can, in turn, restrict your access to the namespace you’re trying to push your dataset to, triggering this error. In such cases, double-check your credentials and try again to see if you’re typing them right.

Upload to the correct namespace

As mentioned above, you need adequate permissions before uploading your dataset to a particular namespace. If you can’t acquire said permissions, you can always push your dataset to your namespace (in this case, your username) and later access it online. 

Don’t use read-only tokens

Using read-only tokens while running the push-to-hub command can also trigger the error. Ensure you’re using read/write tokens and rerun the command.
