Why Is a GitLab Webhook That Integrates with Jenkins Failing with a “500 …instance_identity.InstanceIdentity.get …” error?

Problem scenario
A GitLab webhook (aka integration) fails.  It used to work as an integration mechanism with Jenkins.  The GitLab error message says:

"500 <!DOCTYPE html> ... at org.jenkinsci.main.modules.instance_identity.InstanceIdentity.get(InstanceIdentity.java:133)"

Go to the Jenkins server and reinstall the GitLab plugins.
