Deploy failure due to load file issue

I want to ensure everything works using the Starter plan before I purchase the Professional plan.

My file in my scrapy project opens a file (user_agent_list.txt) to read a list of user agents which will be used to populate the USER_AGENT_LIST property.  The file is located in the resources directory, which is a directory where the file is located.  Here's my code snippet: 

user_agent_list_directory: Path = Path(__file__).parent / "resources"
user_agent_list_file: Path = user_agent_list_directory / "user_agent_list.txt"
file: TextIO
with as file:
    USER_AGENT_LIST = [user_agent.rstrip('\n') for user_agent in file]

 I know I can probably set the USER_AGENT_LIST string directly in my file, but it would be a little cleaner to read a file to get the user agent list.

I get the following error when I run the shub deploy <project number> command.  Note, I've changed some strings to remove any identifying information:

  This is the only issue in my deploy because when I replace the above code snippet with the following code snippet which sets the USER_AGENT instead: 

USER_AGENT = 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/74.0.3729.169 Safari/537.36'

 The entire deploy works.  Please help.  Thanks!
