Hi! Welcome to our Community :slight_smile:

Looks like there is an error in the packages/ui-contexts/src/en.json

these are some symlinks: Rocket.Chat/en.json at develop · RocketChat/Rocket.Chat · GitHub

that will end up here:

This file was recently changed…

make sure you have not changed this file.

A great place to hang around and look for help is also in out Get started channel:

note the fixed message on the banner, it has a nice set of instructions on where to get specific help for environments such as Windows and Mac.

let me know if this helps :slight_smile:

Hey just to be sure are you talking about the change in en.json file(ui-context) or en.18n.json(/apps/meteor) file ? Which file should I not change ?

It’s not that you can’t change.

but something is wrong on that file.

have you changed it?

Also, if you only want to change translations, there is a way of doing it without touching code in General > Translations

let me know if this helps :slight_smile:
