It doesn't matter so much now because the bug has been fixed, but normally you would use "Save" unless you wish to save the project with a different name or different location.
This bug has not been fixed. I updated Audacity to 2.4.2 yesterday since I was back to doing some work using it. I created a new project and used Save As to save it. I have a couple of programs that use a default name and location if I don't do that.

Yesterday, spent hours editing a project. Then closed it and went to bed. This morning, I recorded some quick audio projects before returning to work on yesterday's project.

All three projects will not open, and give the very same error as OP.

Looking at the file, it appears to be well-formed XML, with no obvious syntax errors.

OS: Windows 10
Audacity Version: 2.4.2
