Pritunl VPN null byte error

I recently started getting an error when I attempt to start the Pritunl service on Ubuntu Mate 20.04. Below is the traceback. Any help would be appreciated!

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/lib/pritunl/bin/pritunl”, line 33, in
sys.exit(load_entry_point(‘pritunl==1.30.3236.80’, ‘console_scripts’, ‘pritunl’)())
