Hello all, I am desperately seeking help on how to import a deck into my anki. The deck is in a “.apkg” file that I have confirmed is able to be imported when I created another profile to test this. However, it will not import into my main user profile that already has another deck in it. Whenever I attempt to import the new deck, I am stuck on a “processing” screen that then eventually closes and I am left with the Mac spinning circle of death with “application not responding” until I force quit the application after waiting over an hour. I am updated to the latest version of anki, I have “checked database” for optimization, and I have no error messages that appear. Any idea what I may be doing wrong/how to fix this? ANY help would be enormously appreciated.
What happens when you try import it into the latest Anki version?
I updated to the 2.1.30 version today. After doing this, on import I received the following error message:
Import failed. Debugging info:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I have NO idea what this means. Any thoughts?
this error is for when you install an older version without pressing
Downgrade & quit button on the newer version that you had previously installed.
It looks very similar to the issue mmdj describes, but this one is actually caused by https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/880042638 - you will need to disable or remove it.
