Solution:

First install all Inventor and Vault updates

1. Try detaching the library from Vault and reattaching it per the workaround here.

  • Right-click on the custom Content Center library in Vault and select Detach…
  • Once the library is detached, attach it again by right-clicking on Libraries and selecting Attach Library…. Choose to the library you just detached to re-attach it.

2. Transfer the Content Center library from Vault to Desktop Content and test saving changes to the library. 

  • Once the library is transferred change the Content Center library access to Inventor Desktop Content in Application Options.

  • Test saving your Content Center library edits to the Desktop Content. 

3. If edits are successful transfer your custom Content Center Library from Inventor Desktop Content to Vault.  

  • Delete the library from Vault before transferring from Desktop Content to Vault.
  • Test saving your Content Center family edits to the Vault Content Center. 

4. If the error persists consider using Desktop Content instead of Vault libraries.
