  • Did you remove all the versions of the item from your default language? Are you able to add an item version back?

  • It seems a folder was somehow corrupted, republishing it didn't help, nor changing it and republishing it. We then took the decision to remove the entire folder from the content tree and did a publish. That solved it for now, and we're in the process of recreating it on a test environment to see if the error comes back. We did not remove any versions but we did publish a child element (with two language versions prior to the incident, which seems somehow to have triggered it) We did have an unscheduled reboot of the machine holding the SQL server so we suspect corruption to have caused it Sep 13, 2019 at 8:15
  • Check every notification item and see if it has at least 1 version in da language (especially the new child item you added)

  • I even tried creating a package with all the items and installing it on another instance, there was no problem there. All the items have exactly 1 version in da Sep 13, 2019 at 9:51
