While upgrading a project or updating graphics pages using the option "Update Pages" in the Graphics Builder, suddenly the following error appears:

What is causing this error and why did Citect abort the project update? 

The names of all the Graphics Pages as well as the Super Genies (names prefixed with !) that are going to be updated in a project, either by upgrading a project or by using the option "Update Pages" in the Graphics Builder, are stored in a file called pages.dbf. This pages.dbf file can be found under the User\Project_Name folder. If there are names of Super Genies defined in the pages.dbf file but these Super Genies did not exist in the project then during the update of the pages Citect opens the graphics pages or Super Genies and then saves them one at a time but when Citect tries to open a Super Genie that does not exist then Citect aborts the project update or the update of pages with the above mentioned error.

This error could probably also occur if the name of a graphics page is still stored in the pages.dbf file but does not exist in the project anymore and during the upgrade of the project or the updating of graphics pages, Citect tries to open this graphics page that does not exist.
