Action 'Start_an_approval' failed - GraphLookUpRequestFailedError

Hi, I'm getting the following error message on the Start_an_approval step:

The request failed. Error code: 'GraphLookUpRequestFailedError'. Error Message: 'User lookup request to Graph failed lookup for user identifier: '{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser","Claims":"i:0#.f|membership|-----.-----@-----.com","DisplayName":"------, -----","Email":"-----.-----@-----.com","Picture":"https:/'.'.

(actual data was replaced with '-')

 

The Start_an_approval step is configured as follows:

I'm guessing that the error message results from the "Assigned to" field, but the error message included the correct email address and user name. This used to work fine when the email address was hardcoded and there was no need for a lookup.
