Fatal Error: Unknown profile version

Operating system


Joplin version


Desktop version info

(unable, fatal error) Mac OS 10.15.7

What issue do you have?

I started Joplin and got the following fatal error. I have already upgraded to the latest version.
I get the same error whey I try to restart in safe mode.


@gumshoe welcome to the forum.

Have you recently installed and then uninstalled one of the pre-release versions? I believe that the 2.14.x series uses profile version 45 and so installing it would have updated your local profile / database.

Pre-releases are available here. Using a 2.14.x version should get you back up and running.

Yes! That's it. I used brew to upgrade, and it actually downgraded, so it stopped working.
Simple solution, thanks!
