Sorry for the inconvenience.

After an error, it's very hard to be sure that allowing the upload to 
proceed won't lead to an undesired state, so I've chosen to be 
conservative and abandon the upload.

(On the specific point that an error in x86_64 shouldn't stop x86 being 
updated: this isn't completely true, for e.g. if a change to a noarch 
package results in a valid x86 packageset but an invalid x86_64 
packageset, we can't accept it, currently)

I'll look at improving the language in the upload report so it's clearer 
that nothing is going to be done after an error.

Yes, seems to have worked fine.
