ArcGIS Ent 10.8.1 > Group Package/Content Export via REST or python > failed to export

Just doing a basic test to use new-ish 10.8.1+ functionality Group Package/Content Export. From my vanilla 10.8.1 single-machine AWS AMI deployment > I created a test FS from Portal > My Content area Create button > and added to test Group > then run python from ArcGIS Pro > fails to Export. The reason given for failure is: it failed.  Hmm....
This also happens from a basic, published, copied-up into a hosted Feature Service from ArcGIS Pro (aka in Pro: Share a Web Layer > option Copy All Data : Feature).
For both tests The items exist and are fine, and the groups are default-settings new groups.

Anyone got any good unit tests, end-to-end code samples, or successful scripts? Or what I may be doing wrong?

Portal logs:
Failed to export item 'd4f27315fbf44a268ada2bbc4c7ebb9f' into a export package : 'java.lang.Exception: Server returned HTTP status code 404. Requested URL:
The file really exists though on: C:\arcgisserver\directories\arcgisjobs\system\publishingtools_gpserver\j781cc01c0a194c4689ff44e9083d1331\scratch\
Apparently the Job should be here, which it isnt.
And the export result EPK to download should be here, which it wont be cause it failed.
More info:
- Tried from Python 10.8.5 (assume this is the latest in the latest ArcGIS Ent 10.8.1 installers in 10.8.1 AWS AMI deployed 07/07/2021)
- ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1 deployed single machine on AWS with self-signed certificate.
- The ArcGIS Pro test used 2.7.1.
