The "Object reference not set to an instance of an object [...] at Flexera.SaaS.Transport.Upload.UploadProcess.ProcessPackageList" error can indicate that a corrupt file has ended up in the C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Beacon\IntermediateData directory on the beacon awaiting upload. The upload process can't handle some types of corruption in these files that occur from time to time. Check for old files in this location, and delete any you find.

(Deleting old files from here generally won't be a problem: this directory contains files containing inventory data that has been gathered to be uploaded and imported into FlexNet Manager Suite. Since fresh inventory data is typically gathered on a regular basis, old files aren't important to keep.)

Hi,

you need to look at the log files of the beacon, 

C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Compliance\Logging

and under 

C:\Windows\Temp\ManageSoft

the Uploader.log

I can't find any error in uploader.log file in C:\Windows\Temp\ManageSoft

But when check ComplianceUpload log in below path it gives error

C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Compliance\Logging

Does this happen to all of the NDIs that are uploading or only some?

this seems like a corrupted NDI and or other log file uploading to core

I am not sure it is for all NDI files or what. But I can't see any stuck files in "G:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Incoming\Inventories" folder in App Server also in Beacon server folder.

I don't think that they are stuck, this looks like ASP.NET issue, maybe try to repair dot.net, make sure that you are running dot.net 4.7.2

Thanks @ChrisG

Beacon Upload file issue is resolved. No more error found in any logs.

Now observed that agent is unable to download Machine Policy file. It gives timeout error.

The policy download problem looks to be unrelated to the topic of this thread, so I would suggest starting another thread if you would like input on that one.
