Cannot add new Note type


I am new to Anki . Using it on Linux (Kubuntu). When I go to Tools->Manage Notes and try adding Notes (which I belive is the Anki name for Card templates). I get the following error. I have tried ‘Check Database’, disabling Add-Ons and restarting Anki. Nothing seems to fix this issue.

Any help is appreciated.

An error occurred. Please use Tools > Check Database to see if that fixes the problem.

Your version has likely been installed using a package manager and is very old. Please update to the latest Anki version from the website. This will likely resolve your issue.

Thanks. I upgraded to 2.1.61 and I could modify existing card templates.

But one of favorite add-ons (Image Occulsion Enhanced #1374772155) seemed to have lost some functionality. I used to interactively mask portions of an image forming the card by creating rectangular boxes. Now I do not see that functionalities at all. The image mask editor is not available anymore.
