I am trying to update a custom step template and i am getting this error,

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at Octopus.Shared.Util.OctopusPhysicalFileSystem.Replace(String oldFilePath, Stream newStream, Int32 overwriteFileRetryAttempts)
   at Octopus.Server.Web.Api.Rules.StoreCurrentActionTemplate.Run(ActionTemplate actionTemplate, IRelationalTransaction transaction, IAttachmentStore attachmentStore)
   at Octopus.Server.Web.Infrastructure.Api.Responder`1.ExecuteRules[TRule](Action`2 ruleCallback)
   at Octopus.Server.Web.Infrastructure.Api.ModifyResponseDescriptor`2.Responder.Execute()
   at Octopus.Server.Web.Infrastructure.Api.Responder`1.ExecuteRegistered()
   at Octopus.Server.Web.Infrastructure.Api.Responder`1.Respond(TDescriptor options, NancyContext context)
   at System.Dynamic.UpdateDelegates.UpdateAndExecute3[T0,T1,T2,TRet](CallSite site, T0 arg0, T1 arg1, T2 arg2)

   at Nancy.Routing.Route.<>c__DisplayClass4.<Wrap>b__3(Object parameters, CancellationToken context)

This prevents me from update template which i commonly update, i think it is a high severity bug which and it should be fix.

    what about that issue?
    you said it will be fixed in the next release and i upgraded to the new
    release and it didn't got fixed yet.
    we work a lot with step templates and this bug is doing a lot of mess in
    our infrastructure....
