MacBook Freezes When Exporting Premiere 2020 14.8

Up until last week, I've had 0 issues exporting my videos after they're made.  I haven't changed any of the settings or anything.   I just updated my software from 14.7 to 14.8 and now it freezes everytime I try and export my file.  It'll export anywhere from 2% all the way to 38% or so and then it hangs and eventually I get the color wheel on the cursor icon.  I tried changing it from hardware to software and that didn't work.  I tried changing the source of where to export the file in case there was a hard drive or space issue, that didn't work.


Here are the specs of my MacBook Air.  It is an older model at this point but again, I just exported a video last week without an issue.  The only new change is I'm using 14.8:

I saw there was a drive update for Windows users to fix this issue.  Any chance it's that simple with my issue?


Thank you
