I observed that most of the people are facing this issue while executing their Selenium WebDriver script on chrome browser. So thought I should share my thought on it. Generally, this error comes when WebDriver is trying to find element using Xpath on chrome browser and if you execute the same script on Firefox browser, your script will work perfectly without any issues.
So basically, the version of selenium WebDriver and Chromedriver.exe file that you are using in your project is the main culprit. Just update your WebDriver Jar and chromeDriver.exe file to latest version and your issue will be resolved.
This is how I solved this problem on my project. I hope this information helps you in resolving this particular issue in your project. Good luck!! 🙂
