Error on staging and production with uploads folder - local uploads directory is currently not writeable

Has anyone encountered an error with a wordpress deploy writing to the uploads folder? I am getting errors in the wp backend that some plugins cannot create backups, files, etc in /srv/www/-sitename-/releases/.../web/app/uploads. I did not encounter this error on my initial deploy. I have also checked what the permissions are set to on the actual server and the shared uploads folder is set correctly to 755. Any advice would be appreciated.

I run into this randomly from time to time. This generally works for me: Upload Directory Permissions on Digital Ocean deployment
