CauseSections with no field on the layout cause the error.
ResolutionTo resolve the issue, upgrade to the Hot Fix version 5.5 SP3 P2 HF1 or later which can be downloaded from RSA Secure Care OnLine 


WorkaroundRemove sections from the layout that do not contain fields or add a field to the section.
NotesBe sure to validate fix in a non-PROD environment first and then escalate to higher environments per best practice guidelines.
Fix has also been applied to the up and coming 5.5 SP3 P3 release.
