Salesforce 2020 release has blocked all Apex tests that use http mocking

We have 100+ tests failing now that our main testing sandbox has received the 2020 release. We can no longer deploy. We’re getting many errors like

Unexpected error: You have uncommitted work pending

And custom errors such as

Failed to make request

We are unable to find a minimum test case because running the whole test suite fails, but running individually failing tests pass.

Running tests in serial with Apex Test execution > Click Options > Disable Parallel Apex Testing has no effect

This should now be fixed, Summer ’20 patch 7 is live on almost all Summer 20 sandbox pods as of this edit

The patch release schedule can vary on multiple factors, but for most pods this should be live this week. You can check the current patch level of your pod from the sidebar of

Sorry for the hassle. We’re looking at what we can do for a revised fix to, but for the moment reverting the changes was the best option to unblock everybody.
