NTFS drives not mounting after updating macOS: com.apple.DiskManagement.disenter error 49221

After updating my Mac, my NTFS for Mac no longer works. It used to mount my drive in read/write mode, but now it only sees my drive in read mode, despite that I've granted it full disk access. If I mount the NTFS drive in Disk Utility, it shows an error "com.apple.DiskManagement.disenter error 49221."
