Missing file rights or a file that disappeared. Try deleting the resources folder and run hugo again and see if it persists. Try not to have “mounts” or “symlinks” in your project.

Thank you @davidsneighbour for always helping me. I did what you have suggested and the result is that it created the necessary directories e.g. resources, _gen, assets, images, uploads but the generated file. Could it be caused by an antivirus? That’s my suspicion. I’m not on Linux.

Because you are not posting the layout file that causes this issue it’s hard to say what the real issue is. But Antivirus might be the last straw (as in probably not). I think you might have a step BEFORE the failing one that does not create the image properly but does not fail loudly so the path is not found in the next step and returns an “Access denied” error.

Phew! I am right. I just temporarily uninstalled my antivirus and everything works smoothly…
