Pagination stopped working after assigning custom page template to new page (different slug)

Question

I am having a problem with pagination on one of my CPT after assigning the custom page template to a different page with a different slug. It all worked perfectly on the test page I developed it with. Only after the new assignment did I run into this issue for subsequent pages (2,3,etc.). Page 1 still works fine. I did resave the Permalinks in WP after the assignment of the custom page template and cleared and rebuild all caches (WP Rocket, WP Engine, Cloudflare).

I also tried modifying the CPT by removing ‘hierarchical’ => true and ‘capability_type’ => ‘page’ but that did seem to have any effect either.

I am sure I am missing clearing something somewhere as it was working perfectly before the template reassignment.

You can see the working one here (click on ‘2’ below the pictures): https://totalk9focus.com/test-page/
You can see the non-working one here (click on ‘2’ below the pictures): https://totalk9focus.com/client-pictures/

I hope someone can help me sort this out.

```                         $total_pages = $arr_posts->max_num_pages;

                        if ($total_pages > 1){

                            $current_page = max(1, get_query_var('paged'));

                            echo paginate_links(array(
