Cannot create Anki Deck Packages after recent update 2.1.49

The software will not allow me to export Anki Deck Package files after I upgraded to the 2.1.49 version. There are automatic Anki2 files being created in the folder I store my deck packages that I do not want(?) and the normal anki deck files create an error message. I use that export function to share the decks I create with my fellow students. Please advise how to either go back to the previous version of Anki, which worked fine for what I needed, or fix this issue. Thank you.

anki.errors.TemplateError: Card template ⁨2⁩ in notetype ‘⁨Basic (and reversed card)⁩’ has a problem.
The front side is identical to card template ⁨1⁩.

Check that there are no duplicate templates in that notetype.

Should it be set to Card 1 or nothing? It is currently set to Card 2. I have never had this issue before and I do not build the decks any differently than before the upgrade.

Thank you for your help.

First, make a manual backup of your collection, just in case.

Then, go to Browser > Edit > Card, and make sure that the two templates are different:

Ok! I had to “flip” the Card 2 option and now it works. Thank you so much for helping out.
