Hey I've also been suffering through this issue and tried a ton of stuff that didn't work! I finally got it to work, though, thanks to a comment on here Photoshop: Can't save file due to program error | Photoshop Family Customer Community .
I have no idea why or how this works, but select the background layer and then make sure all other layers and everything are deselected, and also turn them off. It's a bit inconvenient since you have to turn all the other layers off apart from your bg layer, but it should at least allow you to save progress on the file until you can either flatten and merge all your layers/send your PSD to someone and inform them that they will have to turn all your other layers back on.
For the time being this is working for me, unlike your issue, mine will not save at all even after multiple attempts. I've heard from different people that it's potentially an issue with RAM or cached data, but none of the solutions offered up to fix those scenarios has worked in my case. It sounds like it must be some kind of PS bug, but I still have no idea what/where the problem is and/or comes from. The link that JJMack posted to is just suggesting that perhaps it's your PSD itself that has some sort of corrupted data in it. I have no idea if there's anything we can do about the corruption itself, unfortunately.
