Error Messages because of duplicate IDs (anchors)

I got careless adding endnotes to an ebook and created duplicate anchors with the same name that led to the error message below when I try to validate the book.

ERROR(RSC-005): ./books/Bo/databases/eBookIt/temp_uploads/1596678236.epub/OEBPS/Text/Endnotes.xhtml(14,48): Error while parsing file: Duplicate ID 'EndnotesChapter1_3'

I want to have the ebook work on Google Play Books so that if users download free ebooks from my site at URL REMOVED BY MODERATOR,
they will be able to read it in Google Play Books. Google is currently rejecting it.

I have searched Sigil and can't find where to delete the extra ID.

I would appreciate your thoughts.

The error message explains that the id attribute "EndnotesChapter1_3" is used twice.

Load the epub into Sigil and use Search in the file "Endnotes.xhtml" to see exactly where this id string is being used twice and change one of the ids making sure the one you change is unique and then look for that id in other files href fragments to find your links to those ids and update them properly.

Thank you. Your solution worked perfectly.
