[Defender] Error in WP Admin Dashboard after installing Defender Pro

Across all my WP installation, the following error appears after installing Defender Pro.
I just installed a new WP and Defender is the first plug-in and it is happening. It is not all the time, however regularly.
WP is up-to-date. Divi theme is up-to-date.
