With no apparent reason, product pages do not show for me anymore. Error text:

Warning: Illegal offset type in isset or empty in /path/to/project/vendor/magento/module-eav/Model/Entity/Attribute/Source/AbstractSource.php on line 74

I tried to xdebug it, here is what I found. Error happens in the following method of AbstractSource.php class:

public function getOptionText($value)
    $options = $this->getAllOptions();
    // Fixed for tax_class_id and custom_design
    if (sizeof($options) > 0) {
        foreach ($options as $option) {
            if (isset($option['value']) && $option['value'] == $value) {
                return isset($option['label']) ? $option['label'] : $option['value'];
    // Error here
    if (isset($options[$value])) {
        return $options[$value];
    return false;

The error occurs because $value is an array: $value = array("is_in_stock" => true, "qty" => 1); whereas Magento expects a scalar that can be used as array key.

All the trouble is caused by product attribute with code quantity_and_stock_status - but it is not my custom attribute, it comes out of the box, and I did not change any of its settings.

I reinstalled my entire app, still got the same result.

So it looks to me that it's a Magento internal bug - but it used to work fine, I did not update codebase in any way. What could be the reason that this bug occurs?

Thats because you might have the attribute "quantity_and_stock_status" marked as "Visible on Catalog Pages on Storefront" on the admin panel.

The problem is that on line 74:

if (isset($options[$value])) {

$value should not be an array, but for the stock attribute it is an array, therefore this line crashes.

You either switch it back to Non-visible on Catalog Pages, or plugin this method to validate that $value is not an array.

Will be submiting this on on github.
