Cannot find any CMake profile

I am using  CLion 2022.1 ( Build #CL-221.5080.224, built on April 13, 2022) for a C++ project. Local environment is Windows 11,  and remote host is Linux. 

I created a new Remote Development session. The deployment path is something like /${HOME}}/build_directoy/${project_name}. After it is setup, I initiated the upload from my load to remote. Once it is done, the remote path has CMakeLists.txt and cmake-build-debug in it. However, when I click "Build Project" under "Build", I got "Cannot find any CMake profile". 

One thing I want to mention is under the remote path's cmake-build-debug directory, a few files' timestamp are earlier than ( by a few hours) the remote path's creation time. They are CMakeCache.txt, cmake_install.cmake, CTestTestfile.cmake, Makefile, ${myapp}.cbp. Was it caused by the "sync"? Another clue is I was able to do remote build (from within Clion on Windows) with the remote path is directly under /tmp/0TWtN2g7U2 yesterday (it seems like CLion geneated the remote path under /tmp. Maybe certain cache within CLion get currupted? 

I noticed there are a couple of complaints about "Cannot find any CMake profile" as it perhaps covers multiple scenarios.  

Can someone from CLion support respond to it ASAP?

Is the issue still relevant? Do you mean the remote mode with the thin client (Gateway, or the remote mode with the "Remote Host" toolchain (
