Conflict between Gutenberg and Yoast SEO

ForumCategory: PluginsConflict between Gutenberg and Yoast SEO

I’ve been using the Gutenberg plugin for several months now and with no problems.  But suddenly, I get the following error when trying to add or edit a post using Gutenberg: screenshot
The buttons don’t do anything.  If I deactivate the Yoast SEO plugin, everything works and I can add the new post I was trying to add.  If I re-activate the SEO plugin, the problem returns.  I tried deactivating and re-activating the Gutenberg plugin and that changed nothing.  I thought about about deleting and reinstalling the Gutenberg plugin but I’m worried that doing so may introduce other problems and I would rather go without SEO than cause myself ny other issues.  What is the real problem and how do I permanently fix it?
Thanks,

This sounds like a Yoast SEO issue. I googled “wordpress gutenberg yoast seo” and found this, which might be helpful: https://yoast.com/how-we-designed-yoast-seo-for-gutenberg/
Or an answer might be here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordpress-seo
Hope this helps!
