Hello Team,

SonarQube 7.7 is past EOL. You should upgrade immediately. Your upgrade path is:

7.9.5 (current LTS) -> 8.6 (this step optional)

Beyond that, it appears that you have some sort of permissions issue:

blocked by: [FORBIDDEN/12/index read-only

I would make sure there isn’t some “helpful” background process locking random files that SonarQube needs full access to.
