Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate Could not load type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.DocumentSet.DocumentSet

Occasional Contributor

I am trying to extract the data using the SharePointPnPPowerShell2016 module.

 

When I call Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate it start to run, it goes through some of the settings Regional Settings, Supported UI Languages, Audit Settings, Site Security, Fields, Content Types, but then throws an error

Message :

I am running another environment with very similar set up, and it progress to List Instances and runs without problems.

Any ideas would help!
