My Ardour log (Ardour 6.0.0, AVLinux 2020.5.10) shows many messages like this:
2020-06-15T22:17:18 [INFO]: Re-Scan Plugins (Preferences > Plugins) to update the cache, also make sure your system-time is set correctly.
2020-06-15T22:17:18 [WARNING]: Ignored VST plugin which is newer than cache: ‘/usr/lib/vst/AF210.so’ (cache: ‘/home/diehl/.cache/ardour6/vst/8964b0bbfb57af4e9809985322bbc60ea0ca4e31.fsi64’)
I rescanned the plugins but still get this error. Checking the files mentioned in the complaint I don’t see a problem:
$ dir /usr/lib/vst/AF210.so
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 1332592 May 28 12:56 /usr/lib/vst/AF210.so
$ dir /home/diehl/.cache/ardour6/vst/8964b0bbfb57af4e9809985322bbc60ea0ca4e31.fsi64

Plugin appears to be older than cache.
Also, I am able to use the AF210 plugin normally, so it does not seem that the VST is actually ignored.
Are these messages some kind of bug or is there a configuration problem?
