Error (18108): Can't place multiple pins assigned to pin location Pin_XXX in Quartus 18.1.2 for partial reconfig

Hello,

 

I met this error while trying to fitter my partial reconfig design with Quartus:

DMBI_H2F is a port in my design, which uses pin AV25, AW25, ... etc .

 

The original design without partial reconfig settings and using the same pin assignments worked well. The original design contains the same rtl code (including a stratix 10 partial reconfig controller IP using Avalon MM interface) and uses same constraints. The only difference is I added these PR settings in my tcl script :

set_instance_assignment -name PARTITION pr_partition -to counter_0 set_instance_assignment -name PARTIAL_RECONFIGURATION_PARTITION ON -to counter_0 set_instance_assignment -name PLACE_REGION "X19 Y3 X38 Y22" -to counter_0 set_instance_assignment -name ROUTE_REGION "X18 Y2 X39 Y23" -to counter_0 set_instance_assignment -name RESERVE_PLACE_REGION ON -to counter_0 set_instance_assignment -name CORE_ONLY_PLACE_REGION ON -to counter_0 set_global_assignment -name REVISION_TYPE PR_BASE set_instance_assignment -name EXPORT_PARTITION_SNAPSHOT_FINAL blinking_led_static.qdb -to | -entity top set_global_assignment -name RESERVE_AVST_DATA15_THROUGH_DATA0_AFTER_CONFIGURATION "USE AS REGULAR IO"  

 

The FPGA I use is stratix10 1SG280H. Quartus version is Quartus Prime Pro Edition 18.1.2, which has been updated recently.

 

And I have checked in Quartus GUI that the AVST pins are set as "use as regular IO".

 

Also I found this info Error (18108): Can't place multiple pins assigned to pin location Pin_XXX (IOPAD_X224_Y12_N61), Info... , which declares a similar problem has been resolved in 18.0 Update1, but it seems to remain to me, although I'm not very sure if they are the same bug.

 

Did I do anything wrong or it's a problem of Quartus? Any help will be appreciated!! Thx in advance!
