Error: An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down.

Scenario: I was uploading the following file, using Jamf Admin, and it failed every time: Install macOS Big Sur.app.pkg

Fix/Solution: Rename the file, the extra dot is causing the error

FROM: Install macOS Big Sur.app.pkg
TO: Install macOS Big Sur app.pkg (REMOVED dot before "app")

NOTE: This error and solution may not help you. Other scenarios could also cause this.

Also tried (non worked):
- Updating file through Jamf Pro --> Settings --> Packages --> New Package --> Upload --> would not upload at all
- Updating Jamf Admin
- Changing file permissions
