HTML issues on front card

I kept getting notifications to download the new version of anki. Once I did, I could no longer open the anki application as it said my add on tags had issues. I could never disable the add ons because the application never opened. I tried googling how to fix it and restarting the app and my cmputer but nothing worked. I ended up deleting the new version and redownloading the old. Now the app works again and I have all my decks but now when I use certain decks this shows up.

Invalid HTML on card: SyntaxError: Unexpected token <
SyntaxError: Unexpected token <

I have tried googling and looking info forums on how to fix this but I cant figure it out. I am running anki 2.1.26. Can someone please help with this?

Start Anki while holding down the Shift key to disable add-ons.

Since some of your add-ons don’t work with the recent version, I recommend just staying on the previous one for now.

The error message about invalid HTML is probably caused by some error in your card templates. If these were shared decks that you didn’t modify, contact the decks authors to fix the problem.
