Various REST API requests to APS Controller end with error similar to:

May  2 04:09:06.975 : INF [rest:825406 1:22619:7f9e9eded700 SAAS 871251414]: [ APSC] REST: request transaction is blank
May  2 04:09:06.977 : ERR [rest:825406 1:22619:7f9e9eded700 SAAS 871251414]: [ setCurrentByID] Failed to set current transaction by ID ''. system exception, ID ''
Unknown vendor minor code id (0), minor code = 0, completed = NO

This may have an impact on many aspects of Odin Automation:

1. Login to CP:

    An attempt to log into the Control Panel fails with the following error:

        java.lang.NullPointerException One or more hotfix(es) are available.

    On the UI node in the `/var/log/pa/pui/pui.log` the following error can be found:

        04:08:32.371 [default task-210] DEBUG -  18 ms [GET /packages?active()]
        04:08:32.411 [default task-210] DEBUG -

    The same issue could be represented by these errors:

        06:27:24.949 [default task-53] DEBUG c.o.a.s.navigation.ejb.NavApiBean - javax.ejb.EJBException: RESTEASY004655: Unable to invoke request
        Caused by: org.apache.http.NoHttpResponseException: failed to respond

2. Failing orders:

Random orders may fail, having the following pattern in the problem report:
