Why am I seeing these error messages?

The errors indicate a different version of the plug-in installed compared to the digital signature thumbprint (certificate hash) registered at the admin web portal.

How to fix it

Delete the current key registered at the admin web portal. Check the certificate chain back again, so you can register it correctly.

In order to verify the certificate of the plug-in:

  1. Locate the plug-in .dll file.
  2. Right-click the file
  3. Go to properties.
  4. Click digital signatures, and then click details.
  5. Click view certificates and locate the thumbprint entry.

You'll need to add that string of characters with no spaces between them in the admin web portal to the key that corresponds with the plug-in.

You need to update this registration every time an update is installed for any plug-in. For more details, see the guide for the plug-in you're installing.
