Error trying to acces Tools/Preferences

Hi everyone,

While trying to use Anki for the first time on Linux Fedora Linux 37 I get an error message when trying to acces Tools → Preferences. I have incuded the full error down below. I am trying to fix the ‘Your Anki client does not support the new timezone handling yet. Please ensure your Anki is up to date.’ issue in Preferences.

Because of the timezone handling issue, I cannot use Anki now. Any help would be appreciated.

An error occurred. Please use Tools > Check Database to see if that fixes the problem.
If problems persist, please report the problem on our support site. Please copy and paste the information below into your report.
Anki 2.1.15 (442df9d6) Python 3.11.0 Qt 5.15.7 PyQt 5.15.6

Flags: frz=False ao=False sv=1

You need to update Anki, this version is three years old. (Packages Distributed by Linux Distributions) It is a know bug that has been resolved.
