With this condition, I am unable to modify/correct the Meta Data, as this exception appears.

My actions were to edit Meta Data for a single record. I tried to apply 3.14, but my antivirus (Norton), balked and removed the file. second attempt, highly recommended not installing. I don't think this is a Version issue.

Please Advise,

Thank You for your help

"A Dearly Love" should read "I Dearly Love"

That error indicates something is interfering with calibre's access to
its library folder. Typical culprits are:

1) An antivirus program - try excluding the calibre library folder from
the antivirus program
2) DropBox oor similar file sharing program -- dont run them at the same
time as calibre
3) Putting your calibre library ona non native filesystem, such as a
networked drive

 status invalid

Changed in calibre:
status: New → Invalid
