Using Helixbase as a starting point, I have created a helix solution and an faq feature module. The faq content items have serialized as well as the various templates and layouts.

After adding a few more modules, I started getting this error

PS D:\sitecore> dotnet sitecore ser pull
There is a dependency loop in your module dependencies Unresolved modules: (lists all modules)

I double checked the solution and there aren't any dependencies between the projects that violate the Helix pattern.

Is there something in Sitecore 10 that I may have missed when creating the VS modules? What are the possible causes for this error?

This happens within the Sitecore CLI during the serialization process to properly setup the order of serialization operations and protect the serialization processes.

Within the Sitecore.DevEx.Serialization.Client.Configuration.ModuleDependencyResolver class there is a check to determine dependency counts and if it exceeds a count of 20,000 this error is raised.

I suggest checking any "references" defined in serialization modules.
