SOLVED: Magic Wand PMID failing after Zotero update -- Coincidence?

Single PMID requests are resulting in the !message: Lookup failed. Zotero could not find a record for the specified identifier. Please verify the identifier and try again.

I, individually tried the following PMIDs:

Is this a problem with NLM PubMed or could it be related to the Zotero update I accepted today just before I tried to capture PubMed metadata? I can use the Wand successfully to find articles via DOI. All other aspects of Zotero seem to be working fine.

Zotero version: 5.0.91-beta.9+479f01fa9

  • FWIW, I did push an update to the pubmed import earlier today, but I don't thinks that's the problem here -- those PMIDs work for me & the change was thoroughly tested.
  • Thanks, Sebastian:

    PMID import through the Magic Wand is working again. It wasn't working earlier. (I tried over about 90 minutes.)

    Every year the last week of September and the first couple of weeks of October are when NLM does work on their system (the end and beginning of the federal fiscal year). Perhaps, I should have waited longer and tested again before I sent my plea for help. I marked my post "solved".
