Great, thank you, I appreciate it!

Hi there,

In order to resolve the error, would I have to reinstall Audacity on my Mac ?

You certainly would have to install the new version, yes

Since the error is when it tries to update, I assume I will have to go to the website directly, download & install. Thanks for your help! :+1:t2:
