There was an uncaught exception during the run of the actor and it was not handled.

Hey! Running into a bit of an issue.

The scraper was working well within my app, but has suddenly stopped working. Usually a simple update to the LinkedIn cookie value solves this. But I've had no luck.

The error I'm getting is the following: There was an uncaught exception during the run of the actor and it was not handled.

Has something changed? I can't seem to run it through Apify's dashboard either.

Hello and thank you for reporting the issue! I could reproduce it. This is an API change on LinkedIn's side. I'm investigating it now and will let you know shortly!

Hello! Indeed, this issue is affecting all users. Unfortunately, LinkedIn has completely removed a feature from their private API that was used to retrieve many companies at once, breaking the actor. I'm trying to find another way to do it but I had no success so far. I will send a message to the support in order to recredit users by sunday. I keep trying to find a solution by then!
