Consider how someone else might reproduce this error, which is the first step to fixing the issue. 

In your other post you specify it only occurs with one particular camera, and the error message mentions something about camera profiles.

At a minimum, can you provide the camera model, the profile specified for the photo you are copying settings from, and the profile of the photo you're copying the settings to.

Hi...Thanks for your comments. I'm using a Leica M Monochrom which I've been using for years. This issue has just arisen today and it's driving me nuts because I'm trying to get through a few thousand pictures. The profile selected and the only option is "Monochrome." With my other cameras, either "Embedded" or one of the Adobe profiles is available. I'm simply going from one "edited" image and clicking "Previous" or trying to copy and paste.
