CMS Error: Failed to persist entry: API_ERROR: Validation Failed

Hi there, I’m getting an error when trying to save anything in the CMS. Just started today after months of working just fine. We have tried incognito browsers and everything but still the error is the same. I couldn’t find a topic with this same exact error so hopefully someone knows something.

We don’t have any conflicting branch names.

The error is: Failed to persist entry: API_ERROR: Validation Failed

In the console I see this
“API_ERROR: Validation Failed

I replaced https://unpkg. with {unpkglinkbase} since I can’t post more than 6 links.
