Download metadata from Amazon broke with last version?

I haven't been able to download any metadata from Amazon in the last version and would be grateful for ideas to try.

I am using Windows 10 and Caliber 2.81 (32 bit).

Clicking on Download metadata in the Edit Metadata dialog shows at the top: "calibre is downloading metadata from: Google, Amazon.com, Edelweiss" but then it times out saying no matches are found.

Here are the details reported:

I noticed that in the details it doesn't include Amazon in the "Using plugins" section. Should it?

I have checked and in the configure metadata section Amazon is selected, and in the configure source it shows US and Choose server automatically. I tried using all the other servers to get data from but nothing worked. I tried unchecking Amazon, saving, then rechecking Amazon.

I did try a reinstall of Calibre, and I am not using Avast. I disabled Kaspersky but this didn't help.

Any ideas?

I don't see Amazon in that list.
Is that enabled, configured. There were changes recently.

It was caused by a stupid typo I made. Go to Preferences->Miscellaneous click the Open calibre configuration directory and delete the file metadata-sources-cache.json in that directory. Then restart calibre and you should be fine.

That fixed Amazon metadata on my Linux Mint system, I was gonna do more testing before asking about it.

I have not been able to retrieve metadata since the end of February. I just installed 2.82 and this is still a problem. I even tried manually adding the ASIN to a story to see if that would solve it to no avail. Here is the log for that attempt:

That's because bing has not indexed that particualr book on the amazon website, go to https://www.bing.com/search?q=Cosmic...www.amazon.com for yourself to check. You can get it to work by changing the server used to either amazon or google in Preferences->metadata download->customize the amazon plugin
