Error on anki 2.1.43

Screenshot 2021-05-09 at 15.56.56

I got this notification on my screnn when I tried to add a card on to my deck. I tried “check database” as they said but that didn’t work. I also can’t quit or restart Anki.Which means I can’t shut down or restart my desktop. ( when I tried to I got that error notification). Please help me to fix this as soon as possible :frowning:

If you can reproduce the problem, please let me know the steps you’re taking that trigger it, and the original error you get.
