Description Of Issue
On my mac desktop App for Roon, there is a red triangle with an exclamation point in it. When I click on it I get the message "Metadata Improver: Halted: Roon needs a software update.

The UI seems ok, but it won’t let me search TIDAL. But when I shuffle and play playlists, it does use TIDAL.

Hello @Richard_Guth, and thanks for your report! We’ve seen this message in the past, and in the majority of cases, the message is resolved by a reboot. Could you please reboot the mac and let me know if the message returns? Thanks!


It did not work the first time I did it, but I reboot my laptop three times, reboot the nucleus twice, and deleted and reinstalled the desktop app, and it is now working! I was getting the same message on my mobile devices, but this seems to have resolved it.


So glad I did not try to troubleshoot myself! :slightly_smiling_face:

Hey @Richard_Guth, that’s awesome news! Please let me know if the message returns.
