Widgets not working when using Gutenberg editor but load fine on Classic view.

Before we dig in:

  • I'm on the latest version of WP,
  • I have disabled all the plugins and am using a WP theme.

All of a sudden, my widgets have disappeared and I can't seem to save my changes. When I enable the Classic Widgets plugin everything is working fine. I'm getting a lot of errors in the console too. (See video attached) The data seems to be correct on the back-end, but none of the widgets seem to be rendering when I'm using the new Gutenberg widget view.

More in video reproduction below:

I'm expecting to see a paragraph block when using a block-based widget editor in the video. Thanks for taking a look!

Thank you for the report. Please remember that there are contributors with limited or no vision who will not be able to access the information in images and videos, so it is important to include a description of the problem.

I am not able to reproduce the issue. I followed these steps:
Activated Twenty Twenty-One.
Activated the classic widget plugin.
Deleted the widgets that were in the footer widget area by default.
Added a new paragraph.
Deactivated the classic widget plugin.
Opened the widget screen again: The widget showed correctly without any issues.
Updated the content of the paragraph and saved without any issues.

I am not sure how else to troubleshoot this.
-Try deleting any other widget content, in case there is widget content from the deactivated plugins, that are breaking the widgets since those plugins are now deactivated.
