I have created a Site Template using "Save Site as template" SharePoint option. While creating a new site using the Custom Site Template facing the below issue.

enter image description here Previously I was able to create the sites using custom templates. Any Feedback's, Solutions welcomed. Thanks!

ULS Logs report:
