This error message indicates that the method 'persisted?' was called on a nil object or variable. The 'persisted?' method checks whether an object has been saved to the database or not. In this case, the object is nil, which means it doesn't exist and therefore can't have been saved. To fix this error, you need to ensure that the object being referenced is not nil before calling the 'persisted?' method on it.
