Help. Problem syncing decks and not able to add new cards


I am not able to add new cards or sync any of my decks.

When I try to synch my decks I get the following error message

"Syncing failed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “aqt/sync.pyc”, line 324, in run

I am currently running version 2.0.50 which I believe is an outdated version.

Syncing does not work on 2.0: Anki 2.0 support has ended - Frequently Asked Questions

You need to update to 2.1.


If I download the new version will I lose my progress in all of my decks in the outdated version?

You won’t loose anything. Your collection, media files and add-ons are stored in a different folder and are independent of Anki’s installation.
