GoogleAnalyticsImporter - [Exception] Import was cancelled

Hello,
I’m stuck with importing older data from Google Analytics into existing sites in my Matomo installation.
After successfully importing data for one site, I tried to import the data for other sites.
To import these data, I use the following command line in the Matomo directory:

php7.2 ./console googleanalyticsimporter:import-reports -vvv --property=UA-xxxxxx-xx --account=xxxxx --view=xxxxxx --dates=2018-04-14,2020-10-28 --idsite=4

And after executing I got the following error:

ERROR [2020-11-01 10:57:03] 16986  Uncaught exception: /var/www/matomo/plugins/GoogleAnalyticsImporter/ImportStatus.php(176): Import was cancelled.
Import was cancelled.

php 7.2 has this version:

PHP 7.2.34-4+0~20201018.51+debian10~1.gbpc553f7 (cli) (built: Oct 18 2020 21:34:04) ( NTS )

GoogleAnalyticsImporter is v. 1.5.6.

I tried it also with php 7.3 and with a standard php.ini. No further error notes in log files.
I tried it with quotes and without. Also for other sites and with different date ranges. Everytime the same error.

Any hint what to do?

Hi,

To not duplicate any discussion, I think writing in the github issue is easier:
