      Description

      This error message looks like an accident

      3 problems:

      • You have to wait several minutes for the whole artifact write process to complete before getting to this error message - would be a lot nicer if mender-artifact checked first
      • Unclear whether error is on my machine or the machine I am sshing to
      • Formatting / langauge looks a little cryptic
