Unable to get series information

Running Calibre 7.50. When I download the metadata, I am not getting series name or index number. Tried on several different books. Has this functionality been removed?

Kind of. I am guessing you haven't upgraded for a while, there are a few threads floating around discussing this when it cropped up a few weeks ago. Calibre used to get its series information from librarything, but that website started blocking Calibre so Kovid removed that particular download plugin.

Download and install the Goodreads Metadata plugin which usually has decent series information.
