Apply-pnp template error: Value does not fall within the expected range

I am using PNP to create sites and apply templates.
I noticed this: 

-Sites where the standard groups are named “Site Members”, “Site Owners”, “Site Visitors” throw an error

-Sites where the standard groups are named  following the site name e.g. “Gilbert Okello Members”, “Gilbert Okello Owners” etc … don’t throw an error.

The error thrown is:

Apply-PnPProvisioningTemplate : Value does not fall within the expected range. At line:36 char:1 + Apply-PnPProvisioningTemplate -Path ('https://NNNN.sharepoint.com/s ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : WriteError: (:) [Apply-PnPProvisioningTemplate], ServerException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : EXCEPTION,SharePointPnP.PowerShell.Commands.Provisioning.Site.ApplyProvisioningTemplate   

-------------------

Any pointers to where the issue could be?

I have same issue too. Not sure why it is throwing that error.
