Error opening definition.pbir: Matrix cannot be null

Hi everyone,

We are using power bi git integration to keep track of all the versions of our datasets and reports. I have encountered an error with one of the reports (so far, only with this one) where I cannot open the definition.pbir file because it says "the matrix cannot be null. name of the parameter: bytes".

 

I have tried disconnecting the workspace from git, removing the workspace folder from git and connecting again anf the issue is still ongoing.

 

Has anyone had this issue before? Does anyone know how to fix it?
