Action 'Set content approval status 2' failed

I'm creating a custom approval workflow which allows employees to use the 'Start an Approval' Action to approve or reject items on a SharePoint Online List.

My flow is always erroring out on the 'Set Content Approval Status' step.  However, it appears to be doing what it's supposed to: it properly sets the Approved/Rejected status on the SharePoint List, and it adds the comments.


When I approve the request it works fine. However when i reject the request, it starts showing that it's 'retrying' up to 4 times, and it always ends with the following error:
