I think all we can do is spit-ball. I've done some more testing on my
local instance of AUR and everything seems to be working fine.
There's some really odd behaviour when testing on aur.archlinux.org

The only way I can think of debugging this is to directly look at the
AUR database and filesystem. Unfortunately I don't have access to that.

It seems that AUR is unable to delete the old files properly so
that it can upload new files.
