Checkpoint bug back?

I’ve not played Gears 5 in a while and recently reinstalled on my XOX. One of the most annoying bugs at launch for me was the checkpoint bug where the checkpoint symbol would remain on screen and any progress beyond that point wouldn’t be saved. This was fixed not long after launch and all was well. Having reinstalled the game this week I’ve noticed the bug seems to be back and I can’t progress beyond act 1 chapter 1 when playing NG+. I’ve searched online and can see lots of references to the original issue but no mention of a reoccurence. Is anyone else experiencing this and are there any workarounds?

Thanks in advance.
