Unable to deploy Azure Function (VSCode) with "arcgis" (latest) python package

I try to deploy an Azure Function App through VSCode. The deployment takes more than half an hour and never succeeds when in my requirements.txt the python package "arcgis" is listed. At least the arcgis latest version does not work for deployment. With "arcgis==1.9.1" in requirements.txt it worked after 10 minutes. The deployment does a zip deployment with a pip install on Azure.

Anybody an idea what goes wrong?
