Remove Text Mesh Pro asset using package manager window (in the Unity Editor toolbar, select Window -> Package Manager). If it is necessary to have Text Mesh Pro in the project, we recommend downloading it from the Unity asset store. Assist store link:

    Quick workaround: in Unity, go into Window -> Package Manager and Remove Text Mesh Pro from the Packages list
