unplug the cable and look inside the receptacle…does it all look ok?
how many wired leads do you see in there? then look at the plug on the
end of the cable, how many wire contacts there?

then plug it back in? does the error report change? (sometimes contact
might be blocked by a tiny bit of corrosion and unplug/replug cleans it)
the other end of the cable, what is it plugged into? unplug, inspect and
then replug…any change?
if it is plugged into a router or other device with multiple ports, the
move to another one (sometimes one fails and the others are good)
try a different (known good) cable. any change in the error?
