As a test, If you save the gcode with Slic3r to your PC, then use Octoprint to upload the file from your PC. What happens?
also open the gcode in a text editor and see if it actually build.

Things to do/try

  • Enable serial logging (in octoprint's settings), start your print, and upload the log to pastebin and post a link
  • Slice and put the file on an SD card and insert it directly into your printer
  • Slice and connect your PC to the printer, and use another host program
  • Start octoprint in safe mode to rule out any plugins interfering
  • Make sure there aren't any prusa firmware update commands in your start gcode, those have been known to lock the printer up because it expects a response.

Lastly, try to be more descriptive. Don't make us ask 200 questions to get to the bottom of this.
