2.0.15 to 2.0.16 error?
« on: February 17, 2020, 11:38:52 AM »
I want to upgrade to 2.0.16. getting this error. what does it mean? screenshot shows currently install packages.

 Error in Package Installation
At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.

Package manager can't find target code, usually because it's been changed by a mod.  You have to manually edit those files before installing upgrade or bad things will happen.  Click the edit icon left side of error files, it will display target code and replacement code.

Should be something similar.  Try to find part of the target code, not all of it.  If it was all there, you wouldn't have an error.
