We have faced with this error too:

NoMethodError (undefined method `empty?' for nil:NilClass):
  vendor/plugins/extended_fields/app/models/user_list_setting.rb:40:in `columns'
  vendor/plugins/extended_fields/app/models/user_list_setting.rb:14:in `initialize'

I have managed myself with fixing this error by changing line 40 in vendor/plugins/extended_fields/app/models/user_list_setting.rb
fields = list_class.default_columns.collect{ |column| column.name } if fields.empty?
fields = list_class.default_columns.collect{ |column| column.name } if fields.blank?

Going to try this solution in the testing environment.
How soon can we expect an updated package being available?

#3 Updated by Frank Dautzenberg about 10 years ago

The solution was not really diffcult to test
Worked OK!
