I've have read couple dozens questions that seemed to be similar to this one on this forum and others, and haven't found one that seems to be my particular issue.
I have a list of items that any user can submit, and a limited number of people can approve.
I have a workflow that runs when a new item is created: it emails the team to let them know that a new item is submitted; then starts a task for the specific person selected at item creation. All of this works fine.
Once that task is complete (Variable:Outcome is either Approved or Rejected) I have a pair of if-statements to set the content status to either Approved or Rejected - and this is where it breaks down. The workflow hangs with the following error when trying to set content approval status:

But I'm the one running the workflow, on an item I created, and I'm the site collection admin. Even giving myself explicit Full Control permissions in that particular list doesn't make a difference.
Any advice / suggestions are appreciated!
