Terraform AWS Provider Panic & Plugin did not respond

Hello, I’m facing some plugin issues, maybe someone has already solved it:
I’ve tried many versions of AWS provider, but the result is same, and I’ve reverted plugin to default version that I’ve used:

Here is terraform provider setup

terraform              {
   required_version    = ">= 0.12.0, < 0.16.0"

   required_providers  { 
     aws               = ">= 3.0.0,  < 3.4.0"
  #  aws               = ">= 3.6.0,  < 4.20.0"
     local             = ">= 1.4.0,  < 4.20.0"
     template          = ">= 2.2.0,  < 4.20.0"
   }
}

Actual error

│ Error: Plugin did not respond

│ The plugin encountered an error, and failed to respond to the
│ plugin.(*GRPCProvider).ApplyResourceChange call. The plugin logs may
│ contain more details.

Error: The terraform-provider-aws_v3.34.0_x5 plugin crashed!

This is always indicative of a bug within the plugin. It would be immensely
helpful if you could report the crash with the plugin's maintainers so that it
can be fixed. The output above should help diagnose the issue.

After adjusting the version requirements did you run terraform init -upgrade or remove the plugins from the .terraform directory?

Hi, @stuart-c

Yes, I’ve did everything you’ve mentioned
Plus I’ve completely remove the .terraform directory and .lock files
Additionally I’ve tested in clean directory with terraform init, plan, apply

The result is same
