almost every time I delete a field in my product types I get this message popping up in my dashboard :

ENTITY/FIELD DEFINITIONS Mismatched entity and/or field definitions The following changes were detected in the entity type and field definitions. Product The commerce_product.field_produit_labels field needs to be updated.

It has not been possible to update entities with "Drush" for some time.

Why do I have these problems regularly ? This is only with the Commerce module.

How can I correct this? Without breaking my site.

ubuntu@ov-b2b650 ~/www-example-com $ drush entup

In UpdateDBCommands.php line 110:
  Drupal removed its automatic entity-updates API in 8.7. See https://www.drupal.org/node/3034742.

You can quick-fix it by adding module devel_entity_updates https://www.drupal.org/project/devel_entity_updates and run the command drush entup. Don't forget to export configurations after that.

Also, you can fix it by manually creating an update hook - follow https://www.drupal.org/node/3034742#comment-13097250

  • Ok thank you, why do you have to export ?

You need to enable or install the devel entity updates first before running drush entup command.

Install Devel Entity Updates Module with composer (Source: https://www.drupal.org/project/devel_entity_updates)

composer require 'drupal/devel_entity_updates:^3.0' (or composer require drupal/devel_entity_updatesto automatically get the latest version)

Enable Devel Entity Updates Module

drush en devel_entity_updates

Hope this will work for you.
