Flamenco is Blender Institute's render management software. It has been used in productions such as the Caminandes series, Cosmos Laundromat and Agent 327 - Barbershop. Check out live site and docs on flamenco.io.

I suspect it has to do with the behaviour of Path.resolve() (doc). AFAIK on Windows it also "resolves" mapped drive letters to their \\SERVER\share\path\to\file notation, which is a pain in the rear end.
I have discovered that the error during the job submission can be prevented if "Relative paths only" is turned on in the Blender Cloud settings. I am not sure if that will introduce other issues, or if this is on by default, but it appears that it addresses the issue.

Error is still occurring for both 2.79 and 2.80, but only when a WAV file is in the video sequencer and I try to submit to Flamenco. The .blend files don't submit and get an error as below, with the display in the Flamenco Render tab reading "Found asset Narration-Audio.wav" when it stops packing. All files submit properly once the audio track has been removed, which is an acceptable workaround for me.
@Joel Howe (jhowe) can you try with this BAT wheel file? Just remove any exist blender_asset_tracer*.whl file from the wheels directory of the Blender Cloud add-on, then put this one in place and restart Blender.

D:/ is a local physical data drive on my main Win 10 workstation.
R:/ is the Flamenco project.
R:/ is a network mapped folder location to D:/Flamenco, so in the case of submitting the job, R:/ points to the same hard drive. R:/ was created using Windows "Map network drive", which I don't believe allows you to specify a protocol.
All Flamenco workers have an R:/ mapped back to my workstation, which is also running Flamenco manager.
Inside R:/ are three folders:

I have been able to successfully submit to Flamenco a version of the file that has the object with an Ocean modifier, but only when the Cache path for that modifier was empty.

Adding a sound file to the sequencer in an empty .blend file was enough to reproduce the error for me, but I am attaching this actual file. This file has the proprietary elements removed, including the WAV file in the sequencer. To get this to submit to Flamenco without error, I have to delete the WAV audio and both the Alembic fluid surface and the Ocean modifier fluid surface.
Please give us files we can use to reproduce the issue. The blend file you uploaded packs just fine, albeit with warnings about missing files.

Nope, deletion of those jobs is impossible for a reason. When the job is in that status, its tasks are being created by Flamenco Server, and nobody else should be touching the job.
I think it's need to have ability to remove jobs in 'under-construction' status, anyway, even if it will be fixed.

Yes it helps. Looks like i can launch it now.
Please try [Flamenco Manager 2.4-dev6](flamenco.io/download/flamenco-manager-2.4-dev6-linux.tar.gz). If you go to setup mode (./flamenco-manager -verbose -setup) and re-save your configuration, it should automagically remove the variable-name variable for you.
I can confirm the first issue; there is a regression bug in Flamenco Manager 2.3 that causes this duplicate variable.
There are two things wrong:

It now shows 5 KiB of 'head' and 10 KiB of 'tail', except when accessing the URL with WGet/Curl, in which case it downloads the entire log file. See log_server.go.
I was looking into something like this for the create-video task in the blender-render job compiler for the server. I want to be able to set the ffmpeg arguments that are being used to create the resulting video. As I was digging into this, I thought that using a variable override in the manager, similar to the path override for ffmpeg, could allow for at least making the output file an MP4 vs MKV. Is this barking up the wrong tree?
