We have an approval workflow which are running on the SharePoint list item. It starts when new item created in the SharePoint list.Daily instances are running for this approval workflow is approx 100. This error (Nintex failed to start workflow. the given key was not present in the dictionary) occurs in approx in 3-4 months for some of the instances of the workflow.

Below is the error stack
