Uploading SD file using Python "sometimes" causes errors

My organization is using a Python toolbox to upload two SD files every two hours. Most of the time we have no issues, but sometimes the upload has a problem. I've added a loop in the script to attemp the upload again and most of the time it will upload the second time. Here are the errors from the Server Logs:
SEVERE -- Failed to rename cache folder.  *This happen every time I upload but does not seem to effect the upload

Two below occur at the same instance (I assume they are the same problem)
SEVERE -- Error executing tool.: ERROR 001360: Failed to get basic item metadata for service definition upload. Failed to execute (Publish Service Definition). *This is critical. When I get this error the upload does not work

SEVERE -- Failed to get basic item metadata for service definition upload.: ERROR: code:404, Could not find resource or operation 'ie2c45393-1528-4e03-a9ba-3a28f6ad754b' on the system., No resource could be found at that address. *Same as 1360

The upload routine of my script:
