I am unable to deploy field changes to my dev org with VS Code, due to the following error when running SFDX: Deploy source to org:

An error was encountered during conflict detection. MetadataTransferError: Metadata API request failed: Component conversion failed: Method not implemented

  • I have pulled the Account object using the CustomObject type in my manifest.
  • I am able to deploy Apex Classes just fine
  • I can deploy fields using the CLI directly with sfdx force:source:deploy -m "CustomObject:Account"

No errors appear in the log file under ~/.sfdx/sfdx.log

I have verified that my sfdx CLI is up to date.

Any help would be appreciated.

Disable conflict detection during deploy in vscode.

  1. Select File > Preferences > Settings (Windows or Linux) or Code > Preferences > Settings (macOS).

  2. Deselect (uncheck) Detect Conflicts At Sync. enter image description here

Now try deploying the changes. Hope it works.
