"This NSPersistentStoreCoordinator has no persistent stores", despite setting up all capabilities

Hi guys,

First of all, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I'm in the last steps of my task manager app: getting the tasks to sync between devices. However, I get the error "This NSPersistentStoreCoordinator has no persistent stores (unknown). It cannot perform a save operation." What does this error exactly mean? My container is initialised so it should have a persistent store, right? I've also enabled all the proper capabilities I'm pretty sure (eg, I've enabled CloudKit, created a container, enabled background fetch and remote notifications.) Here is the code for my data controller:

import CoreData
import Foundation

class DataController: ObservableObject {
    let container = NSPersistentCloudKitContainer(name: "TaskDataModel")
    init() {
        guard let description = container.persistentStoreDescriptions.first else {
            fatalError("Container descriptions not loaded")
        description.setOption(true as NSNumber, forKey: NSPersistentHistoryTrackingKey)
        container.viewContext.mergePolicy = NSMergeByPropertyObjectTrumpMergePolicy
        container.viewContext.automaticallyMergesChangesFromParent = true
        container.loadPersistentStores { description, error in
            if let error = error {
                print("Core Data failed to load: \(error.localizedDescription)")

Here is TaskManMain:

struct TaskManApp: App {
    @StateObject private var dataController = DataController()
    var body: some Scene {
        WindowGroup {
                .environment(\.managedObjectContext, dataController.container.viewContext)

Thanks for any help!
