Arnold CPU render will not complete. Leaves one blue square. Please Help. I'm desperate.

I'm not sure what happened, but all of a sudden Maya 2022 Arnold renderer is leaving one blue square on every render I make. I have rendered these same scenes previously with no issue. I even tried to figure how to contact Autodesk Tech support, but apparently if you have a student license, you don't have the option.

Below are a few renders I made with Arnold CPU render. GPU render didn't seem to have this issue , but I'm not using GPU because it looks like garbage when I render anything with glass or light :/.

There is a blue square on the left side of every render. These are actually in 2 different files. I've tried rendering in a fresh scene, and have reset my preferences multiple times. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Maya. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what causes this, and a fix? I really need to be able to use CPU to render. Please Help? - Thank you.

What does the log file say?

https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AFMUG/Log

Does this happen in the Arnold Render View window too?

there is nothing in the log file, and no it does not happen when I'm just in render view. I'm still having the issue for several months now. I uninstalled, reinstalled, reset prefs, exported geometry out and back into a fresh scene. today is 8-26, still happening. I'm just at a loss. I need Maya to work. I haven't been able to render a full shot since the end of June.

Nothing? Not a single message? We need to see an Info-level Arnold log, to get a baseline understanding:

Is this Render Sequence or a batch render?
