RoboHelp 2019 - Upgrade Project (from RH2017) CSS Dependencies Error

While working on upgrading two separate projects from RoboHelp 2017 to RoboHelp 2019, one of my technical writers is receiving notification that "Upgrade has completed with issues."  The reported issue is this:

Warning: Failed patching and copying CSS Dependencies from C:/Commissary/RHStyleMapping.css.

Warning: Failed patching and copying CSS Dependencies from C:/Banking/RHStyleMapping.css.

Both of these projects were originally created in RoboHelp 2017 by a person who is no longer with our company.  My writers (and I) are not particularly familar with CSS files.  (I did confirm that the RHStyleMapping files involved are not identical, but aside from the 114KB and 111KB file sizes, I have not delved into line-by-line details).

The "upgraded" versions display no TOC, no indices, no glossary, no topics or contents of any sort.

I am not certain where the problem lies with these projects.  Other projects created by this same former writer were successfully converted.  If all of them have the same look-and-feel, would it be OK to attempt replacing the RHStyleMapping.CSS with one from a sucessfully-converted project?

Addendum: I renamed the original RHStyleMapping.CSS within the Commissary project to .OLD and replaced the original with the RHStyleMapping.CSS from a different 2017 project that was successfully upgraded to 2019.  The same error occurred, which makes me think the problem is not the CSS file so much as it is the way its contents are being used by *something* within these projects.  I can't even begin to plot out how we would track down what/how/where this is happening.  Looking for ideas!  Thanks so much

Upgrading to the new UI 2019 or 2019 Classic?

Either way it is not something anyone else has reported. I would have asked you to send me the CSS but there are obviously more issues than just that.

Can you share one of the projects? If you can, then see the Contact page on my site and send the project as instructed there. Do make sure you include a link to this thread and please do not email the project direct.

I will take a look at it tomorrow.

To be clear, send the project before upgrade so that I can upgrade it and

compare.
