Let me jump in, I had that issue in past didn't solve and didn't care much about it.
My opinion it was issue with older WordPress version, some plugins, theme or maybe problem with hosting.
As I said have problem on old WordPress version and on hosting that I don't use it. So I can't say what can cause.
It would be better to find out why auto save make this errors then disable it.

There are several plugins to disable this feature if someone is not comfortable with editing the code.
Here is a list of some of them: https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/autosave

I have thought about disabling the autosave feature on my wordpress but the feature has actually saved me some grief at times when I have run into a problem. I would make sure that you are aware of the consequences of diabling it before you actually do it.

This thread was initially from a few years ago, but the easiest method is editing the wp-config.php file by adding
This will delay the autosave to once a day instead of every few minutes.
The other methods to do so require editing the WordPress core files or theme files. The issue with this...any time an update is done to WordPress or the theme...that edit may be lost, whereas the wp-config is a constant that is unaffected.
