SynColor error? Maya Arnold render issues

Hi, I'm getting below error with Maya 2020 and rendering result by Arnold is darker than it should be.

I have Maya 2018 and 2019 installed as well and they work fine...

Check the paths in  2020/prefs/synColorConfig.xml

 

For example, accented characters can cause that error:

You can use your favorite text editor to view and edit the xml file contents.

If you're not sure about it, post the content here...
