The Universal Minecraft Editor allows users to edit many different parts of their world, including the NBT of items, entities, and blocks. It is commonly used to edit NBT data of items.

However, the 1.16.100 update of Minecraft Bedrock Edition has broken the editor's Chunk Locator. Instead, the Chunk Locator shows a blank white canvas and I am unable to select a chunk to edit:

UMCE Chunk Locator Empty

If you still attempt to select a chunk and hit the "Open" button, no luck, the following error appears:

UMCE Chunk Locator Error Message

This seems to only happen in worlds that are 1.16.100+. Older worlds will still open properly.

Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

Chunk errors can be fixed by exiting the world and entering again, disconnecting and reconnecting/reloading the server. Normally only one player will be able to see a specific chunk error, although it is possible for two or more players to see the same chunk error at the same time.
