Publish to ‘web’|#Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException

Issue: after updating a UAT server I was getting the following error in the “item:deleted” event after trying to publish anything…

Job started: Publish to 'web'|#Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.AggregateException: One or more exceptions occurred while processing the subscribers to the 'item:deleted' event.

Nice. Okay, looking at the item deleted event, I found we had two additional handlers for Email Experience Manager.

<handler type="Sitecore.Modules.EmailCampaign.Core.RootItemEventHandler, Sitecore.EmailCampaign" method="OnRootDeleted" patch:source="Sitecore.EmailExperience.ContentManagement.config"/>
<handler type="Sitecore.Modules.EmailCampaign.Core.ItemEventHandler, Sitecore.EmailCampaign" method="OnItemDeleted" patch:source="Sitecore.EmailExperience.ContentManagement.config"/>

I commented those out, republished, and it worked just fine. Not ideal – I don’t know¬†why they had an issue – but it unblocked me.
