What type of toolbox? In any event the tool AddAngleDirectedLayout can't be found or it has been improperly called 


... sort of retired...

Hi I am getting the same error, As per document you should pass tool name to resolve conflict.

In my case it was script tool I created and its not conflicting with any tool so I simply removed the tool name from arcpy.GetParameterInfo()
