We can upload up to 15 GB file to SharePoint online and files attached to list items can be up to 250 MB in size.

You are trying to upload 50 MB, so it's not related to any file size issue. You can check the size limitations here

So, can you please check once the issue related to any other things. Hope this helps to you.


I had a similar problem. It was fixed by increasing the file size in the following registry subkey

We usually faced something similar with users across the world. The error shows a message that could be related with some limits or boundaries of SharePoint but it doesn't. In our case, the error is that those users don't have a good network connection so they are not able to upload files so big, a network related issue. The solution applied is tell them upload a bunch of files or one file with less size.
