PnP PowerShell Apply-ProvisioningTemplate error : Sequence contains more than one matching element

Occasional Contributor

Can someone look at the template and advise why I'm getting this strange message.

 

The template was created using the Get-SPOProvisioningTemplate powershell command, the error I get is during the execution of Apply-SPOProvisioningTemplate.

 

 

I got this message on the original template and after stripping out more than half of it, I'm still getting the error.

 

I'm attaching the verbose logging (apply_result.txt) and the original template and the stripped down template

(I just renamed the pnp files for easier identification, the original name was "template2.pnp")

 

Appreciate any insights!

 

Thank you,

Jan

@Jan Vorster, I can't see any attachments.

 

I'm assuming that you use Set-SPOTraceLog. Could you copy the last 10 lines or so in this post.

 

 

Apologies - it seems like the selected files don't get attached when I click "Post"... I'll zip them together.

 

Herewith the output of the Apply-SPOProvisioningTemplate command:
