Oh no an error occurred

Before the error happened, I was editing cards and then synced my collection

Sentry link (for developers)

Can you go to tools → check database?

if it still occurs, can you delete the ankihub addon and reinstall

It might be a new issue in the add-on. @TimothyDo5 if Check Database didn’t help, can you use AnkiHub → Help → Upload logs and data and let use know the filename shown?

Here is the filename. Thank you guys so much for everything you do!

I didn’t get the error testing with your collection, but the issue is caused by two notes having the same ID for some reason. Try searching for nid:1484768396948 in the browser.

Tools > Check Database will fix the issue by giving one note a different ID, though. Are you still getting the error?

I just pushed that new card yesterday, I double checked and it has two separate NIDs, so probably something user-related and not AnkiHub-related I’m assuming

Original card nid: 1484768396947
New card nid: 1484768396948 (basically +1)
