[Resolved] Create Lambda error. Timeout

Hi all,

New here! I'm trying to deploy my first skill to Alexa, but when I use ASK DEPLOY, all seems to work fine until the script gets stuck on 'Creating lambda function...' where it sits for a while, then I get this:

Create Lambda error.
TimeoutError: Connection timed out after 120000ms

There isn't anything else for me to go on really to help troubleshoot. It looks like the ASK DEPLOY script has created a .zip file which is ~6MB in size, I assume it is struggling to upload that?

Can I extend the timeout setting?

The error message is clear (timeout) but what can I do to fix it?

Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance.

UPDATE : This was simply due to my dismal upload speed.
