EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT) UIPopoverPresentationController presentationTransitionWillBegin

1

I have received crash log from production and cannot understand how to reproduce it. It happened only once on iPad with iOS 9.3 as per information I have.

This crash happened after my latest release where I used VIPER methodology for some of my views. I have searched the Internet and suppose that my issue can be caused by similar issue like Leo Natan described in his comment here. But I am not sure and wondering how to reproduce and fix the issue. I do not even understand what popover is being presented.

Here is my crash log (removed binary images):

Binary Images:

I have a feeling that this crash may happen when one of my VIPER modules is getting called. It should work this way:

Current view controller (MVC) assembles module by calling this method:

class PeriodPickerAssembly: NSObject {
    static func assembleModule() -> PeriodPickerRouter {
        let router = PeriodPickerRouter()
        let presenter = PeriodPickerPresenter()
        let viewController = UIStoryboard.init(name: "PeriodPicker", bundle: nil).instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "PeriodPickerViewController") as! PeriodPickerViewController

        viewController.periodPickerPresenter = presenter

        presenter.view = viewController
        presenter.router = router

        router.presenter = presenter
        router.view = viewController

        return router
    }
}

Then method choosePeriodWithParams shows view as popover:

    class PeriodPickerRouter: NSObject, PeriodPickerRouterInterface, PeriodPickerInterface {

    weak var presenter: PeriodPickerPresenter!
    weak var delegate: PeriodPickerDelegate!
    weak var view : UIViewController!

    // Ingoing
    func choosePeriodWithParams(startDateLimit: Date?, endDateLimit: Date?, currentStartDate: Date?, currentEndDate: Date?) {
        view.modalPresentationStyle = .popover
        view.popoverPresentationController?.sourceView = UIApplication.topViewController()?.view
        appDelegate.window?.rootViewController?.present(view!, animated: true, completion: nil)

        presenter.configureDatePickers(startDateLimit: startDateLimit, endDateLimit: endDateLimit, currentStartDate: currentStartDate, currentEndDate: currentEndDate)
    }

    // Outgoing
    func dismissPeriodPicker() {
        view.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)
    }

    func periodPickerDidChoosePeriod(startDate: Date, endDate: Date) {
        delegate.periodPickerDidChoosePeriod(startDate: startDate, endDate: endDate)
        view.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)
    }}

I think that these two lines can be related to the issue. But not sure how to prove it:

view.popoverPresentationController?.sourceView = UIApplication.topViewController()?.view
        appDelegate.window?.rootViewController?.present(view!, animated: true, completion: nil)

Finally I have found the issue during testing. And it's stupid and well-known issue (Shame on me, I forgot to test my app on iPads properly). But I still do not understand how to analyse that crash report.

Error has the same text, except line numbers (it's okay, because code changed and I had this issue with different popovers).

I hope it will help somebody.
