There currently exists an issue with file uploads and the security settings on the Engineering web servers. While we have a number of different avenues to try and resolve the issue, currently because of the issues with the AFS DB servers and Puppet (https://sysnews.ncsu.edu/news/551313cf) at the moment, we have no way to push changes to our web servers. Rather than attempting to work around the problem by hand and quite possibly making issues worse (and more inconsistent), we are waiting till our configuration management environment is fully functioning to continue working on this issue. All that being said, we do not expect to resolve the upload issue until tomorrow.
