Describe the bug
When I try to edit a post or add a new post, I get a message that says "The editor has encountered an unexpected error." This has been happening since I updated the Gutenberg plugin earlier today. Clicking "Attempt Recovery" has not fixed the issue.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Go to 'New'
  2. Click on 'Post.'
  3. See error

OR

  1. Go to 'All Posts'
  2. Click 'Edit'
  3. See error

Expected behavior
I should be able to add a new post or edit an existing post.

Hey @jalexander4444
thanks for your issue. It's an error from the Yoast plugin, they are working on it, see: Yoast/wordpress-seo#10867
Yoast SEO 8.1.1 will fix it.

Sorry for the issue, yes there's a pending fix in the Yoast plugin that will be hopefully released on Monday.

The bug happens when trying to open the "Categories" panel in the Gutenberg sidebar. As a temporary workaround I would suggest: temporary disable Yoast SEO, then edit a post in Gutenberg and close the Categories panel. Then you can safely re-activate Yoast SEO and edit posts, as long as you don't re-open the Categories panel 🙂

Yoast 8.1.1 has been released. Please update and activate your Yoast plugin, and (if applicable) deactivate and uninstall the workaround, and confirm the issue is addressed.
