After joining a coop server, I got "Error loading game mode assets".
I had this exact same issue on my custom server. My mistake was I defined the wrong map in the launch .BAT while loading a different map in the gamemode parameter.
As Whitby said, it IS a server issue with setup calling for aa map that does not exist
