Unexpected response data from server in SharePoint 2013

All I was doing was writing JavaScript Object Model (JSOM) to write data to a list in SharePoint 2013.

All of a sudden, the same program started throwing error. In catch block (to be specific, kind of QueryFailed function), I was displaying args.get_message() and args.get_stackTrace().

This is what I was getting as a response.
args.get_message = "Unexpected response data from server"
args.get_stackTrace = null
