    Resolution Note (fix version 10.x):

    The embeded template files that ship with the editor installation need to be updated (because it is currently trying to upgrade HDRP and first importing the project at the same time).

    Latest version of Unity shouldn't have the issue anymore.

    As a workaround, clearing the Library folder and reimporting the project fixes the issue.
