You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression

So, I am using EXO PowerShell module for quite some time, with everything working out as it should. Two days ago, when I opened the application, it said that update was necessary and I downloaded the installer. Now, however, when I connecting using connect-exopssession -userprincipalname through user@email (like I always do), it returns two errors:

  • You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.

    56e\CreateExoPSSession.ps1:210 char:13
  •         $attributeCollection.Add($attributes)
    
  •         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • Connect-EXOPSSession -UserPrincipalName user@email
  •   + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Connect-EXOPSSession], ParameterBindingException
      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ParameterNotInParameterSet,Connect-EXOPSSession
    
    

If I run Connect-EXOPSSession without parameters, it shows only the first error. Does anyone know what is going on here? What should I do to evade these errors in the future?
