PyCharm getting error - Unable to save settings: Failed to save settings. Please restart PyCharm

Whenever I tried to open any project on PyCharm, this error message kept showing up on the console. Tried to dig around/fix it on my own but not sure what I should be doing. Found this log below from the idea.log, not sure if it is helpful. Please let me know. thank you

Hi, please test if the issue is resolved after disabling IdeaVim plugin. If the plugin is to blame, please make sure you're using the latest version of both PyCharm and the IdeaVim plugin. 

You can also try removing the cache by deleting /Users/username/Library/Caches/JetBrains/PyCharm2020.3 directory.
