Anyone else seeing Update Failures on PURL 476?  We have seen this with several instances as well as Flexera One.

I have also heard of this PURL update failing to apply across a number of FlexNet Manager Suite instances with an error like the following appearing in PURL import log files:

2021-03-01 09:31:21,249 [Console.ImportPURL    ] [ERROR] Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_LicenseDefinitionUsageRight'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.LicenseDefinitionUsageRight'. The duplicate key value is (04FDB8DB28A957C79CC2EF2C340881BF, 4CBC4C4D97EACFDA3F5277FD7A81DCE9). Line 24

The appropriate team in Flexera is looking into it.

I just manually started ARL update and the PURL-IBM which was causing issues is now fixed for us.

This was our error:

2021-03-05 07:31:04,867 [Console.ImportPURL    ] [ERROR] Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_LicenseDefinitionUsageRight'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.LicenseDefinitionUsageRight'.
