Cannot update a component while rendering a different component warning

I am getting this warning in react:

index.js:1 Warning: Cannot update a component (`ConnectFunction`) 
while rendering a different component (`Register`). To locate the 
bad setState() call inside `Register` 

I went to the locations indicated in the stack trace and removed all setstates but the warning still persists. Is it possible this could occur from redux dispatch?

my code:

register.js

class Register extends Component {
  render() {
    if( this.props.registerStatus === SUCCESS) { 
      // Reset register status to allow return to register page
      this.props.dispatch( resetRegisterStatus())  # THIS IS THE LINE THAT CAUSES THE ERROR ACCORDING TO THE STACK TRACE
      return <Redirect push to = {HOME}/>
    }
    return (
      <div style = {{paddingTop: "180px", background: 'radial-gradient(circle, rgba(106,103,103,1) 0%, rgba(36,36,36,1) 100%)', height: "100vh"}}>
        <RegistrationForm/>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

function mapStateToProps( state ) {
  return {
    registerStatus: state.userReducer.registerStatus
  }
}

export default connect ( mapStateToProps ) ( Register );

function which triggers the warning in my registerForm component called by register.js

handleSubmit = async () => {
    if( this.isValidForm() ) { 
      const details = {
        "username": this.state.username,
        "password": this.state.password,
        "email": this.state.email,
        "clearance": this.state.clearance
      }
      await this.props.dispatch( register(details) )
      if( this.props.registerStatus !== SUCCESS && this.mounted ) {
        this.setState( {errorMsg: this.props.registerError})
        this.handleShowError()
      }
    }
    else {
      if( this.mounted ) {
        this.setState( {errorMsg: "Error - registration credentials are invalid!"} )
        this.handleShowError()
      }
    }
  }
