Unknown 'InvalidValue' Error

Hi everybody!

I faced an inconsistent error while updating dcc.Graph with px.scatter object via callback.
It happens right after I run my app and push the button triggering the dcc.Graph update so that it is obviously connected to scatter plot initialization. But the error occurs randomly, sometimes my app works regularly.
Once I face the error, the app goes OK then.

It really seems to be similar to this case:

My callback code…

@app.callback(
    Output('Scatter_plot', 'figure'),
    Output('Histogram', 'figure'),
    Output('Bar_chart', 'figure'),
    Input({'type': 'column_name_buttons', 'index': ALL}, 'n_clicks'),
    State('Histogram_norm_type', 'value'),
    State('Time_checklist', 'value'),
    State('Date_checkbox', 'value'),
    State('Date_picker_range', 'start_date'),
    State('Date_picker_range', 'end_date'),
    prevent_initial_call=True
)
def update_plots(*input_parameters):
    changed_id = dash.callback_context.triggered[0]['prop_id'].split('","type"')[0].split('"index":"')[1]
    dff, date_axis = aggregate_by_date_time(input_parameters[-1],
                                            input_parameters[-2],
                                            input_parameters[-3],
                                            input_parameters[-4]
                                            )

    xaxis = date_axis if date_axis is None else dff['Date_Time']

    fig_scatter = px.scatter(data_frame=dff, x=xaxis, y=changed_id, color='ErrorMessage')
    fig_scatter.update_layout(paper_bgcolor='#f0f8ff', plot_bgcolor='#f0f8ff')

    fig_hist = px.histogram()
    if input_parameters[-5] == 'count':  # index [-5] is a 'Histogram_norm_type' - 'value'
        fig_hist = px.histogram(dff, y=changed_id, x=xaxis, color='ErrorMessage', marginal='box',
                                histfunc='count')
    elif input_parameters[-5] == 'percent':  # index [-5] is a 'Histogram_norm_type' - 'value'
        fig_hist = px.histogram(dff, y=changed_id, x=xaxis, color='ErrorMessage', marginal='box',
                                histfunc='count', histnorm='percent')
    fig_hist.update_layout(paper_bgcolor='#f0f8ff', plot_bgcolor='#f0f8ff')
    fig_hist.update_traces(opacity=0.72)

    fig_bar = px.histogram(dff, x='ErrorMessage', histfunc='count', color='ErrorMessage')
    fig_bar.update_layout(paper_bgcolor='#f0f8ff', plot_bgcolor='#f0f8ff', barmode='stack')
    fig_bar.update_traces(opacity=0.72)

    return fig_scatter, fig_hist, fig_bar,

ValueError: Invalid value

P.S. The error still occurs even if I use plotly.express.scatter() with no arguments, like:
px.scatter() instead of px.scatter(data_frame=dff, x=xaxis, y=changed_id, color=‘ErrorMessage’)
