WPML is giving a fatal error:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get_external_repo() on null in /home/theland8/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/vendor/otgs/installer/includes/class-wp-installer.php:2335 Stack trace: #0 /home/theland8/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(286): WP_Installer->setup_plugins_page_notices('') #1 /home/theland8/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(310): WP_Hook->apply_filters(NULL, Array) #2 /home/theland8/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php(465): WP_Hook->do_action(Array) #3 /home/theland8/public_html/wp-admin/admin-header.php(276): do_action('admin_notices') #4 /home/theland8/public_html/wp-admin/plugins.php(459): require_once('/home/theland8/...') #5 {main} thrown in /home/theland8/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/vendor/otgs/installer/includes/class-wp-installer.php on line 2335

All other plugins on our site are NOT available in the backend when WMPL is activated.

When I remove WPML the backend behaves normal. I tried to re-install and get the same problem again.

Can you help out?
