Also having error Upload Failure (38) when trying to upload a video of about 900MB. I'm on G Suite for Education too.

I tried to respond "same here" but it said I was violating content policy by saying that. Things are a little loopy today but I'm getting that error message too and I have plenty of space in G drive. Maybe we should try zipping our files first. Does anyone know of a free Zipper?

I finally got a large file uploaded without the error message by entering Google Drive through Google Chrome instead of MS Edge. I hope that helps you too.
