I'm having an issue with an Image field that I've set up under a Media Type. I'm able to create nodes, upload images or select images from the media browser just fine, but if I need to edit the node and change the photo, when I save it I get the following warning and my image disappears:

User warning: Missing file with ID image/jpeg. in Drupal\image\Plugin\Field\FieldType\ImageItem->preSave() (line 327 of core/modules/image/src/Plugin/Field/FieldType/ImageItem.php).

The only way I seem to get it working again is to completely delete the node and recreate a new one.

I have other fields set up the same way with normal content types and it works fine. Is there something I'm missing?

I'm using Drupal 8.5.3

Check your Field Mapping for the Media type you created. Set them all to - Skip field - and you should be able to edit the media content without errors.
