If your image is 16 bit then change it to 8 bit. That solved the problem in my case without losing anything of my work

@Joe Ehrhardt I did this and it worked for me but isn't 16 bit better with more color saved? It is not letting me go back in and convert to 16 bit.

When editing photos, it is often very advantageous to work with 16 bit. Especially when editing underexposed raw files or photos have gradients that lead to so-called bandings.
I see two important things:
1. If I can no longer save my file due to some error, I prefer to have an 8 bit version than none at all. Usually it is not the original photo but a processing copy.
2. In the end, a JPG file will usually be created for customers uses - digitally on the Internet or for printed matter. JPG files are ONLY 8 bit anyway.
The processing process is therefore decisive. With 16 bit I have a greater color depth (bit depth) - that is certainly an advantage but not always absolutely necessary. The output file will be an 8 bit JPG file at the end.
I hope this helped you.

Crop this, change that, stay on one foot before you save..and you'll be fine... meanwhile the subscription part of the contract works flawlessly.

Same here. How do I not lose  my work? What do I do. I tried it more than 30 times now and it's giving me the same error.

I am having the same problem. I cannot Save, Save As, or Flatten.

If I turn off the background layer, everything works. 

if I delete the background layer, everything works.

If I create a new white Fill layer, and then have it as the background layer, it stops working again. 

I can repeat this over and over with this same file.

Update: I rolled back to 22.0.1 and everything works perfectly.

Exactly as the error says. I recently updated to the most recent version of PS and now it isn't working. 

I cannot save, save as, flatten, export any file with layers. This has happened twice now.

I could use some help. This is a file from Dec 2019. We are doing their banners again this year, and when I tried to save this file it's throwing off the error below. My searches led me here. I tried the generator plug-in solution, I rebooted PS and even my system, no luck. What else can I try?
