The error is ugly (forward deployment failure) and looks like this —

Upon clicking that failed job you will see this message —

The deployment job is older than the previously succeeded deployment job, and therefore cannot be run

What you have to do to solve this is to uncheck the checkbox as shown below.

This will allow the parallel jobs to run without an issue if they belong to the same stage.

Happy pipelining!!!
