Solving Failed to initialize some site properties for Web in SharePoint 2019

I got this issue "Failed to initialize some site properties for Web at Url: Original Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object." before when trying to create a new subsite after deploying a WSP solution that has an Event Receiver on Item Added or Updated.

In my case, I tried to debug the SharePoint solution using Visual Studio and tried to create a new site or subsite, and figured out that the issue was in my code in Event Receiver and specifically on Item Updated event. so I fixed my code and everything worked as expected.
