Have you tried to setting the platform update channel to latest?

Go to fivem settings > games > at the top there is "UpdateChannel > Set updatechannel to “Latest (unstable)”

Hi ! thks for reply, it works like this.
It help me cause i can connect but it doesn’t solve the problem that it still not working when i go back on normal version.

If in the release version it still gives you the problem, it means that the build which is still in the experimental phase has not been officially released. The fix for this error was in fact released two days ago in the experimental and latest phase.
