The issue is amazon isn't  recieving a confirmation from HA-Bridge before the time out of Alexa.
You can play with the settings in HA-Bridge to try to speed up confirmation sends and improve this, however there is no way to change this time out on the Amazon side.
Network speed and congestion can also affect this.

Your best to make a backup of Ha-bridge and read the help  documentation. Before changing any values the default settings are what works with most hardware so I would use that as the base. As well as setting any call delays everyones setup is unique. The readme does give some suggestions for other setting to change as well that should help with discovery and subsequent calls. In my case simply decreasing the unpn call delay helped while on another setup require me to set the web server ip.
