I keep getting this message when I go to the tags


Can you go to tools → check database

I did and then this popped up

This message also pops out whenever I first open Anki

Can you copy paste the entire text?

I just unsubscribed and then resubscribed to the Anking deck. It seems to be okay for now. Thanks for your response

You can try Tools > Check Database if the issue appears again.
