Can't publish pbix error:object reference not set to an instance of an object

I found I can't publish the pbix to power bi service. 

 

Error shows "object reference not set to an instance of an object"

 

But I tested it for many times. If it's the first time I publish this pbix file, it can be published to power bi service. But if it made some changes of the report and wanted to publish it again. I always got the error message about instance object issue.

 

I can't understand why.

 

Hope someone here can help.

 

Thanks a lot,

What is your data source and what changes do you do after the first publish?

Are you able to publish the updated PBIX file though 'Get Data - Files' in PBI Service?

Does this issue happen to all of your PBIX files or only a specific one?
