Aws-ecs@2.2.1 throws an error during " Retrieve previous task definition and prepare new task definition values"

I have deployed the default React App to test building a React container, pushing the image to ECR and deploying in ECS.

.circleci/config.yml

version: 2.1

orbs:
  aws-ecr: circleci/aws-ecr@7.0.0
  aws-ecs: circleci/aws-ecs@2.2.1

workflows:
  build-and-push:
    jobs:
      - aws-ecr/build-and-push-image:
            dockerfile: Dockerfile.prod
            path: .
            account-url: AWS_ECR_ACCOUNT_URL
            aws-access-key-id: AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
            aws-secret-access-key: AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
            region: AWS_DEFAULT_REGION
            repo: "${AWS_RESOURCE_NAME_PREFIX}"
            create-repo: false
            tag: ${CIRCLE_SHA1}
      - aws-ecs/deploy-service-update:
            account-url: AWS_ECR_ACCOUNT_URL
            aws-access-key-id: AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
            aws-secret-access-key: AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
            aws-region: AWS_DEFAULT_REGION
            cluster-name: '${MY_APP_PREFIX}-cluster'
            container-image-name-updates: 'container=${MY_APP_PREFIX}-service,tag=${CIRCLE_SHA1}'
            family: '${MY_APP_PREFIX}-service'
            requires:
              - aws-ecr/build-and-push-image
            context:
              - test-docker-app

The step fails early with the following error:

aws: error: argument --task-definition: expected one argument

which I assume is this line in the step:

PREVIOUS_TASK_DEFINITION=$(aws ecs describe-task-definition --task-definition "$ECS_PARAM_FAMILY" --include TAGS)

Any clue why it is failing?
