Few days ago I faced a problem when I pushed some code to my feature branch, created Pull Request and waited for standard Travis build check, that all tests, builds etc. passed. Casual day in developer’s life. But not today!
As Github Services are being deprecated, all our old integrations should be transferred to Github Apps - so old integrations could work, but they don’t have to. Tricky, isn’t it? This was also the case here:
Github couldn’t obtain the build status from Travis, even though build passed successfully in CI. We constantly get:

Restarting build, closing and reopening PR, creating new one with new commits didn’t help at all.
Obvious one! Not at all - remove old integration, because now status checks pass only via Github Apps!

you need to remove
and choose one or both from:
Now your Pull Request should successfully obtain proper build status and you could get back to happy codin’!
