When upgrading, the workflow for publishing is not set to direct, and upgrading to 8 in this configuration causes this error.
Make sure your workflow is set to direct before upgrading to DNN version 8. To do this follow these steps:
- Click Edit Settings for the problematic HTML module prior to upgrade
- Click the "HTML Module Settings" tab
- Verify that the Workflow row's drop-down box is set to Direct Publish.
