We've seen behaviour like this before with the old upload server
implementation, where it was possible to get a particular 5xx error on
upload that meant the server had registered the file as uploaded, but
the upload hadn't actually worked (this bug in the old server was
actually the main reason the default client config suggested on
packaging.python.org was changed).

However, your command output indicates that you're already using the
new upload server, so that's unlikely to have been the problem :(
