If it's only happening to one group, it typically means the problem is just that group. Is that the real group name? I can't find that group on my UNS server.

You might want to try picking a bad group, right click "Post Storage/Use Download Age" then set the download age to say 5 days then try downloading headers normally for the group.

It almost looks like thy re-numbered the groups.

I did that with one earlier, (purge to post age) got the same result.
Removed/deleted them and re-added them and still getting the error.
Looks like they are playing around. Will Ignore it for now.

It doesn't sound like you did what I suggested. "Use Download age" is what I suggested.

In the network options, enable "show server commands" then try updating a single bad group. You should see numbers from the "group" command and the response. If you past them here I can look at it.
