Bug 'Failed to load Window Layout' happening all the time

    Hello! I have a project that has the "Failed to load Window Layout" bug. I've read online the work around to fix this and have successfully opened my project using it. However, this doesn't change the fact that every single time I try to open the Project, I have to use the work around of diving into 2 folders and deleting 2 files, which is monotonous and annoying.

    What can I do to end this bug once and for all? Is there a way I can transfer this project to a later version of Unity? The project is a little simple atm, but it uses a few packages like input actions and Cinemachine, so I don't want to go through the trouble of recreating the project from the ground up. But I also do not want to have to deal with this for the rest of the projects life cycle.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    The only thing that helped me was:
    1. Open "Help" --> "Check for updates" in the editor menu bar
    2. Deactivate the checkbox "Check for Updates"
