[cbi-dev] Deployment to stopped working due to ssh-agent issues


In our project (henshin), we are following the deployment instructions from

Our build configuration is set-up to use the SSH Agent with project-specific credentials (box "SSH Agent" ticked, "specific credentials" selected with entry "genie.henshin (ssh://genie.henshin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)".

This setup has recently stopped working, even though we did not change anything in the build configuration.

The last (failing) build:

Relevant excerpt from the build log:
Building remotely on basic-64kkv in workspace /home/jenkins/agent/workspace/cbi_henshin_nightly
[ssh-agent] Looking for ssh-agent implementation...
[ssh-agent]   Exec ssh-agent (binary ssh-agent on a remote machine)
$ ssh-agent
[ssh-agent] Started.
Running ssh-add (command line suppressed)
ssh_askpass: exec(/home/jenkins/agent/workspace/cbi_henshin_nightly@tmp/ No such file or directory
$ ssh-agent -k
echo Agent pid 61 killed;
[ssh-agent] Stopped.
ERROR: Failed to run ssh-add
Finished: FAILURE

Are there any ideas about what's wrong here and how to fix it?
