Unable to export, internal error, attempt to index a nil value

With the latest release of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC v7.01 on a Mac, attempting to export JPGs to a subfolder, when selecting to overwrite the existing will for some files generate the error (translated from Spanish, so it might not be the exact string in the English version): Unable to export: An internal error has occurred: ?:0: attempt to index a nil value.  There are other people posting for this error, but they are either years old or don't seem relevant, so I'm posting anew. Anyone got any ideas?

The latest release is 7.1 not 7.01. Go to Help>System Info...  to verify your version and make sure you have updated.

Kevin Long, I got the same issue and what I ended up doing was, if photo already developed, copy the developed settings, remove the photo from lightroom, re-import the image and re-apply the copied settings and you won't see the issue with that image again.

Hi Kevin, I tried with Lr CC 7.1 to reproduce the issue on our end, but seems like everything is fine. 
Would you please let us know the status after upgrading to 7.1

Thanks,
Ruby

@Jim McEnerney I have a couple of shoots that I need and I usually email the edited versions to myself. I’ve tried signing out, uninstalling then reinstalling, and nothing is working for me.
