Huge error unable to determine config issue

You have either + or # in one of your topics.

The only symbols i see in my configuration.yaml in regards to topics is / and _
is there somewhere else that data could be stored?

Do you use packages?

Not that i can see, i dont have an include or entry in my config

Are you using MQTT discovery somehow (e.g. Zigbee2MQTT)?
The error could lie on the configuration that is created on MQTT and “discovered” by HA
