[CRASH] Unable to get CCW facing of down

Hello all. I’m the owner of a creative FreeBuild server and often we get a**holes who like to come try and destroy our server. It seems that last night, a player was online and then the server went in to a crash loop, until I woke up and was able to check out the situation.

The suspected culprit error is attached along with the latest startup log. I cannot start my server at all. This error causes it to shut down immediately.

I’m using Paper Spigot 1.16.2.

Error:

Latest Startup Log

I think this was fixed a while ago. Update to a recent version of paper

Oh sick. Thanks.
