Getting UndefinedFunctionError for a variable, even after it is well defined

Hello,
I am getting the following error. Code is also mentioned below.

%UndefinedFunctionError{arity: 0, function: :offset, message: nil, module: nil, reason: nil}

{offset, _} = Integer.parse(headers["upload-offset"]). # headers["upload-offset"] returns a valid result everytime. "0", "452342" etc
upload_info = UploadCache.get(identifier)
if  offset != upload_info.offset do. # here it crashes and throw the error.
        ... # doing something here
else

This does not happen every time. I found this issue in the production sometimes and I am not even able to reproduce this on my local machine. Can anyone give their inputs in what scenarios, this type of error can occur?

The error is about upload_info being nil. nil.offset fails with that error

Yes, as @michallepicki said…

You do not receive what You expect here.

AAAHH…that might be it. Thanks a lot, I was thinking that the offset variable is causing the issue. Let me check that. Thanks again.
