platformio-vscode-ide Task Errors dialog after updating

I updated to the latest version of PIO today using the mechanism included in the IDE. Now whenever I compile any project I get an error dialog saying "There are task errors, see output." In output all I see is "Error: Canceled" over and over again. I'm using ESP8266 board and Arduino platform, and it happens no matter what project I compile. There are no errors in the code.
