User-added image
 
trigger tesDocUpload on ContentDocumentLink (before insert) {
	List<string> strIds = trigger.newmap.keyset() ;
	 List<ContentDocumentLink> lstContDoc= [Select Id,ContentDocumentId From ContentDocumentLink where LinkedEntityId IN: strIds ];
	
		for(ContentDocumentLink cd : lstContDoc){
			if(lstContDoc.size() > 3){
				cd.addError('Only 3 files can be uploaded!');
			}
		}
}

can you check the size with System.debug(lstContDoc.size()); before the for loop in this error scenario.

size is 0

In that case, I think it is failing at the for loop. 
 
Add null check to for loop and test with a different set of records[with size of 0, 2 and 3] and see if it is throwing that error. 

Hope it will resolve your issue. Update the status.

Hi DJ,

trigger tesDocUpload on ContentDocumentLink (before insert) {
    try{
        Set<Id> strIds = trigger.newmap.keyset() ;
        List<ContentDocumentLink> lstContDoc= [Select Id,ContentDocumentId From ContentDocumentLink where LinkedEntityId IN: strIds ];
        System.debug('lstContDoc-->'+lstContDoc);
        for(ContentDocumentLink cd : lstContDoc){
            if(lstContDoc.size() > 3){
                cd.addError('Only 3 files can be uploaded!');
            }
        }
    }catch (DmlException dee)
        {
            System.debug('DmlException Message' + dee.getLineNumber() + 'DmlException Message = ' +dee.getMessage());

        }catch (Exception ee) {
            System.debug('Exception Message' + ee.getLineNumber() + 'Exception Message = ' + ee.getMessage());
        }
}

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks and Regards,
