Please make sure that the MSI over which the MST has been created is not open in another MSI editing tool like orca or MSI studio. Also run a cross check in all the tables in MSI database where the feature has a reference

Check the changes which you are making in MST.

If they are not much try creating MST using ORCA.

This errors message is generally due to missing or unnecessary information in the tables of your project. As indicated by the error messages, the error is typically coming from the Directory or Shortcut table. 

Check the Directory table and Shortcut table on the Tables tab in Setup Editor by right clicking anywhere in the tables tab and selecting Find Error. Errors in the tables are indicated in red.
