Sometimes there are problems with a particular channel.
I have had this kind of problem also with the blue channel (not the sky= in
some specific conditions where there are few data on the blue channel and
the white balance / colour balance tends to lower it even more.
In this case, you can ends up with not enough data to overides the noise.

I have had to use a TC correction filter to get more data on this channel
and then to be able to process it.
