VCSA 8 Image Builder - Custom ESXi 8 Image issue

After successfully creating a custom ESXi 8 Zip Bundle via PowerCLI 13, the VCSA 8 cannot import the bundle into Image Builder. I have tested importing many times with different names and always get the same error.

The Image Builder Logs show the below:

KeyError: '7e0b5dab-1a3a-4501-9ebe-c848d8d3bcb3'

Is there a work around for this?

If I were you, I would delete this depot from vCenter via SSH. And would try to upload/create a new one

I'm having the same issue today. Certain things work, and certain things don't it seem to work. I"m on the latest patch, and I feel like last patch didn't do this.
