Error while deploying to ic (http2 error: protocol error: not a result of an error)

getting this error when i try to deploy to ic

An error happened during communication with the replica: error sending request for url (https://ic0.app/api/v2/canister/wsxna-waaaa-aaaam-qaa2a-cai/read_state): http2 error: protocol error: not a result of an error

cmd used:

dfx deploy --network ic --no-wallet

this appears towards the end of the deployment… if that helps
but i am not sure what or why this is happening

Any help here is much appreciated
