An error occurred while creating the book

I have used lightroom many times to create books which have successfully uploaded to blurb. I have not done so for a few months but when attempting to do so with the latest version of lightroom classic (which incidentally is running very slowly in the book module) the upload starts and then aborts about 5% in with the message "An error occurred while creating the book"

Have you tried exporting it first as a PDF to be sure that the issue is located in lightroom and not just in the transfer process to Blurb ?

Do you have access to a book you were previously able to output ? Do you have enough hard drive space ? Are all your pictures available ?
