Unexpected error: External component has thrown an exception

I see there are a couple other similar posts. 

I received this error when using "Filtered Rows" in Power Query Editor.  I used the dropdown, de-selected all values then selected three values/rows I wanted to keep.  Then the error was generated.  I can't figure out how to attach images to this post so I can't include those.  (Your "Insert/edit image seems to only allow images from website and not uploaded) (Also the selectable "Idea Labels" on this post form are mostly irrelivant to this issue")

Below is the clipboard paste from that same popup:

Hi @PaulW2

 

Did the issue happen with all columns or a specific column? 

I tested in Power BI desktop version 2.78.5740.861 64-bit (February 2020) but not able to reproduce the issue. Please try to update your desktop to the same version as ours then test again. 

 

Best Regards,
