SonarCloud GitHub Action not working in GitHub Enterprise self-hosted runners

Hi SonarCloud Community,

I’d like to know if there are any dependencies/applications that need to be installed in our self-hosted GitHub runner container in order for SonarCloud action to work properly. I have been getting these errors even if I have declared correct arguments in the workflow yaml file or sonar-project.properties file. Apologies for the long error as it’s not very descriptive

I have compared running the same yaml workflow file in GitHub hosted runners and they run without any issues.

Also when running manually using workflow_dispatch, the job runs successfully but no code or files are scanned and no data is pushed to sonarcloud. Jobs triggered by push or pull request throws the error above.
