Why dacpac files are not created?

I have 3 new SQL 2019 Enterprise instances on each Windows Server 2019 Standard
and     3 old  SQL 2016 Enterprise instances on each Windows Server 2012 Standard.

Runing DMA from a new machine with DB Engine Accessment mode from SQL 2016 to SQL 2019 was successfull.

But the other two have failed.

I found that dacpac files were not created in the two servers %LocalAppData%\DataMigrationAssistant\DacFxAnalyzer-xxxyyyzzz .

Both old and new servers are on premise.

Tried both Domain Account and SQL Server Account, sa when connecting from new to old server when running DMA. Both account has full access to old and new servers.

No firewalls are set on both old and new servers.

Opened the DMA with "Run as administrator"

Below is the part of DMA Log.

    From the error, it appears it wasn't able to extract the dacpac. There might be some syntax issues due to object names or incompatible commands between the source and destination due to dbcompat level. You can isolate by trying to take a dacpac and exporting manually so you can identify which.
