Exception #0 (InvalidArgumentException): Unable to serialize value. Error: Malformed UTF-8 character

Since upgrading from 2.3.5 to 2.4 I am getting the following on all pages on the frontend.

I have cleared all caches, tried editing the json file relating to serializing with no joy. 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

1 exception(s):
Exception #0 (InvalidArgumentException): Unable to serialize value. Error: Malformed UTF-8 characters, possibly incorrectly encoded

If you have varnish cache installed, please refresh varnish cache.

Also check in incognito mode.

Re: Exception #0 (InvalidArgumentException): Unable to serialize value. Error: Malformed UTF-8 chara

I'm not quit sure why this has worked but I disabled onepage checkout, cleared the cache then reenabled it and it now seems to be working ok.

I'm guessing this had something to do with the cache not clearing properly somewhere.

 

Thank you for your help πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Ž

Re: Exception #0 (InvalidArgumentException): Unable to serialize value. Error: Malformed UTF-8 chara

I was running into the same error.  What i found fixed it was making sure you have Google Recaptha turned off. I haven't tried it with valid keys yet but turning them all off under the security tab fixed my issue.

Re: Exception #0 (InvalidArgumentException): Unable to serialize value. Error: Malformed UTF-8 chara

Magento 2 checkout cart showing unable to unserialize value. Error syntax error for that error this solution may work.

Go to this path and replace method with below code. After applying this code please run below command

redis-cli flushall

vendor/magento/framework/Serialize/Serializer/Json.php

public function unserialize($string)
    {
        $result = json_decode($string, true);
        if (json_last_error() !== JSON_ERROR_NONE) {
            if(false !== @unserialize($string)){
                return unserialize($string);
            }
            throw new \InvalidArgumentException('Unable to unserialize value.');
        }
        return $result;
    }

And try to override this file using preference :

<preference for="Magento\Framework\Serialize\Serializer\Json" type="Namespace\ModuleName\Serialize\Serializer\Json" />
