Hello!

I believe this is an issue that is happening in several different places, mostly with user created datasets. I know this is apparently happening with at least the 4e community dataset, and my own Star Trek Adventures dataset.

There seems to be something goofy with either the xml in use for the update.xml file or the import mechanism.

for an example, this is the update.xml file for Star Trek Adventures. I don't see anything that shows what the issue might be, but if someone else has an idea, please let me know.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<document signature="Lone Wolf Updates" version="1">
<update 
  name="Star Trek Adventures (V1.12)"
  date="2023/02/10:2000" 
  size="1363" 
  description="Dataset for the core Star Trek Adventures ruleset from Modiphius Entertainment." 
  uniqueid="0" 
  filetype="3" 
  download="https://www.dropbox.com/s/zu4d218c38yon9o/STAdventures.hl?dl=1" 
  website="https://www.modiphius.com/star-trek.html" 
  companyurl="https://www.modiphius.com/" 
  priority="99" 
  major="1" 
  minor="12" 
  patch="" 
  folder="stadventures" 
  special="" 
  dynamic="" 
  platform="unspecified"/>
</document>
Thoughts and suggestions?

My updates file has uniqueid="222", but I can't see that it would matter.
Checking my other notes on updates from ShadowChemosh... there's:
special=""
This should be your third party ID you entered when you made the .hl file. This must match "exactly" or HL will be unable to know when a "new" version is released. At a guess it will be something like STAdventures??? (eg: mine is special="Greyhawk Campaign")

Yep, that did it! In this case is was special="Modiphius". I just added that to the xml file and no longer show the update notice.
