Error rendering macro 'excerpt-include' in Confluence

Recently I've been seeing an error like this on Confluence pages:

This article suggests that the error is because the page is removed, restricted, or missing the excerpt macro, but this doesn't seem to be the case. I'm able to fix it by opening the macro, deleting the page containing the excerpt, and then re-entering the same page containing the excerpt.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Fabienne! The page containing the excerpt did not have any restrictions, so I don't think that was the issue.
