I faced this issue while trying to write to Kite and HDFS in the same pipeline. A similar issue was logged for Kite.
I was attempting to write a PCollection to Kite and a different PTable to HDFS as a text file. The write to Kite succeeded, however the write to HDFS only produced a _SUCCESS file with no text file.
Commenting out the write to Kite seems to solve the issue and I can see the text file being written.
