Rendering Problems Exception raised during rendering: com/android/util/PropertiesMap

Questions:

I have recently updated my Android Studio to 2.1.1 and I noticed my layout previews weren’t working anymore, so when I checked it showed a message saying:

Rendering Problems

Exception raised during rendering: com/android/util/PropertiesMap (Details)

When I clicked on details a message window popped up dislaying this error:
