Description of issue: Every single episode I try to import gives the same error. It used to happen once in a while but now my entire queue is backed up with these.

I can’t downgrade from v4 so I am coming here because I would like to fix forward. I have far too much data to try and reimport to v3. Was I silly to have upgraded to a development branch? Yes. I am sorry but I will help to debug my very best.

Looks like the Episodes table has some bad data for the AirDateUtc column for those episodes, Sonarr doesn’t set it to empty string though.

Executing this SQL on the DB might solve it:

UPDATE Episodes SET AirDateUtc = NULL WHERE AirDateUtc = ''

Thank you!

In addition to that query, I had to run two additional ones as well. I am summarizing the fix for people coming here later.

# backup sonarr.db and open a new sqlite prompt
cp ./sonarr.db ./sonarr.db.bak
sqlite3 ./sonarr.db

# now run the following queries
UPDATE Episodes SET AirDateUtc = NULL WHERE AirDateUtc = '';
UPDATE Episodes SET Ratings = NULL WHERE Ratings = '';
UPDATE Episodes SET Images = NULL WHERE Images = '';
