Excluded Steps: unable to exclude step as they are all missing.

When deploying to an environment, I am not able to exclude any of the steps in the deployment as they are not available. I am also not able to search for any steps, search just does seem to work at all. after I execute the deployment all steps are available and I can check off the steps I want to exclude. I am run version 4.1. In version 3.x I was able to exclude steps in the beginning and not on the re-deployment.

Additionally, the UI for the Exclude Step is not good. One of the biggest issues I have is that if a step cannot be Excluded you do not know until you execute the deployment and an error is thrown. In version 3.x the step was greyed out indicating it cannot be excluded.

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for getting in touch and sorry you're seeing these problems. The first issue is caused by a race condition that we've been trying to track down for the last few days, you can track the issue here: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/4046

    The second issue is a regression that we'll also fix, you can track that here: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/4048

    At this point we have fixes for both will be in our next (4.1.1) release as long as they get through final testing.
