Unable to process template language error during approval step

We have a simple approval flow and it fails at Condition for Approval. Below is the error I am receiving:

Unable to process template language expressions for action 'Review_Request' at line '0' and column '0': 'The template language expression 'outputs('Start_and_wait_for_an_approval')?['body/outcome']' cannot be evaluated because property 'body/outcome' cannot be selected. Array elements can only be selected using an integer index. Please see for usage details.'.

It almost feel like the Outcome = Approve does not gets complete. Any suggestions?

I was able to resolve this issue by reconnecting the approval step. Also I had to move the "Start and wait for approval" action a step above.

Hey @sranacdw - I am glad that you have managed to resolve the problem.
