Weird "ingestion" error due to Serverless

A weird error is causing my AWS lambda functions to malfunction. I’ve never had this error before but I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with my code. Here’s what it looks like in CloudWatch :

Ingestion server error 
    "request": {
        "url": "",
        "headers": {
            "accept-encoding": "gzip",
            "content-type": "application/json",
            "serverless_token": "[redacted]"
    "response": {
        "status": 500,
        "text": "{\"message\":\"Something went wrong forwarding RequestResponseEvent data.\"}"

All my Google searches have yielded no solutions.

I also found a bunch of environment variables set in my lambda functions. What are theses? The link in the error appears in this table :

Key Value
AWS_LAMBDA_EXEC_WRAPPER /opt/otel-extension/internal/
OTEL_RESOURCE_ATTRIBUTES sls_service_name=ODAC-API,sls_stage=dev,sls_org_id=V2X12K6Qcrb4ssp2cM
SLS_OTEL_REPORT_LOGS_URL https:// core.serverless .com/ ingestion/kinesis/v1/logs
SLS_OTEL_REPORT_METRICS_URL https:// core.serverless .com/ ingestion/kinesis/v1/metrics
SLS_OTEL_REPORT_REQUEST_HEADERS serverless_token=[redacted]

(Had to add some spaces to the first two links since my post was apparently limited to 2).

Any thoughts on why this is occurring? I’m desperate for some insight.

Also, this error only happens occasionally but during say an hour or so. I need my system to be predictable… Could it have something to do with the “sls --console” command that I ran a few days ago ?
