Do you guys get that when trying to install a package. When browsing from package server "Simple Machines Third-party Mod Site "
Under Add Packages? Because I get the same error for that.

Just want to confirm since then it would be an SMF bug.

I can confirm it as well.

Yeah looks like an issue with the SMF mod site. I can download via my own package server on smfhacks.com
Logged internal ticket since I think this a customize site issue.

Also under "Package servers - SMF Downloads Server" when clicking on "Location of file:  https://download.simplemachines.org/browse.php?api=v1;smf_version=2.1.2/smf_2-1-2_patch.tar.gz" I get:

Re: column names, I also agree that "Old Version" probably isn't the right wording.

Instead: "Installed Version", "Your Version" "$forumname's Version"
And then: "Latest version", "Mod site version", "Available version"

I also fancy status "lights"/orbs for each mod. Like, green if installed version is current, or red/orange/yellow if there's an update available. Or the text could be green if "Current!" or orange/red if "Update available!" Nice visual indicator and colorful incentive.

Just tossing out ideas. :)
