Ls Classic 10.4 error using Publishing service

When publishing a collection set I always receive many pairs of error messages, the first is:

 

readMetadata: Error when Lightroom attempts to process a catalog master image file: “dng_error_file_not_found” (look at the part after “dng_error” for a clue to the problem)

 

This is followed a few seconds later with a list of files headed with:

 

Some export operations were not performed
An unknown error occurred. This photo was not rendered. (nn)

 

Where nn is number of files listed, typically a number in the range 10 to 60

 

I have checked some of the listed files and all those checked do exist on disk as .dng with .jpg sidecar, in the Lr catalog with all expected attributes.  However, they were not exported to disk as requested (just as the error message says) but others in the same collection were.

 

When I export these files manually from Lr, everything proceeds perfectly normally.

 

It would be good to know why these files cause problems to the Collection Publisher so that
a) they are exported as requested and
b) the whole process completes without my involvement

All original photos are on internal hard drive, and should be published to internal hard drive.

 

When I use Lr Export on the files which got dng_error_file_not_found they are all exported OK.

Photos, be the original RAW, DNG, or JPEG, or exported, do not exist in the catalog. The catalog is just a database.

I should have written: ...all those checked do exist on disk [...] and are listed in the Lr catalog with all expected attributes.

After updating Lightroom Classic from the ver. 11.4.1 to ver. 12 I have the same phenomenon as described here when posting photos. Exporting with the same settings works perfectly. Does somebody has any idea?
