"Over the weekend, I was shooting with my 6D at an airshow.  The camera gave me the same error using my 70-200 2.8L lens.  It also happened when I was shooting continuous and several times.... "


You have top drawer equipment so unless a failure in one or the other, I would do a quick reset of the camera back to defaults and try again.  It is probably too new to have dirty contacts but you might try cleaning them.  Gently!


"... which is clearly a software issue.... "


You do know 1000's, million's, of 6D's work without a software glitch?  Try the reset first just to make sure.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
