500 status, with message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." while converting to PDF

for some time we are observing a large number of internal errros when trying to convert documents (e.g. Word DOCX) to PDF. Do you have a production issue?

Example response we get:
Response code: 500. Response body: {"Error"=>{"Message"=>"Object reference not set to an instance of an object."}, "RequestId"=>"7a09537ca372c77776312faf0fe6aa7a"}.

Can I please get a response on this?
We’re seeing these errors for quite some time now.

Please share your input document for analysis, as it seems to be a document-related issue.

Here is example document that fails to convert:

Presentation-eransabanerkalaora (1).docx (2.1 MB)

Thank you for sharing the document. We will investigate this issue.

Great. We appreciate any update if you had a chance to take a look. We make thousands of conversions daily and on average, half of them are failing.

Can we please get an update on this?
