Error when trying to view a variable

5 views (last 30 days)
Ever since I downloaded the newest version of MATLAB whenever I open a variable to view it I get and error. I've attached an image of the error message. It says Conversion to logical from cell is not possible. flip 37. This message appears no matter what kind of varibale try to open ( array, struct, cell, logical, etc) it always pops up. Also seems to pop up if I run code but my variable window is open, even thoguh the code I'm running has nothing to do with the varibles I am currently viewing. Does anyone else have this issue? Are there any solutios to this issue. Below is my version information and operating system
MATLAB Version: 9.8.0.1451342 (R2020a) Update 5
MATLAB License Number: 40924515
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0 (Build 18363)
Java Version: Java 1.8.0_202-b08 with Oracle Corporation Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM mixed model

Hey David,
I have a suspicion that there is either a variable in your workspace, or a function/script in your current folder/path that is messing it up somehow. Try all of these things at once to eliminate the possibilities:
clear all
cd(matlabroot)
restoredefaultpath
rehash toolboxcache
x = 1;
Now see if you can view "x" in your variable viewer. If it works, you can restart MATLAB to get your path back the way it was (since you didn't do "savepath"), and then experiment to determine which variable/file was the cause.
