Question Error communicating with device - no metadata table

Hi.
I'm new to the forum and hope someone can help. I've been using Calibre with Kindle on my iPad 2 quite happily for many months. But now I am getting an error when I connect:

calibre, version 2.48.0
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

no such table: metadata

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 87, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 503, in _books
File "C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Local\Temp\calibre_vc11tj\2o 2uwc_ios_local_db\Kindle_overlays.py", line 113, in books
OperationalError: no such table: metadata

This is on a Win10 machine. But I decided to check OSX (El Capitan), so I installed Calibre from scratch and got the same "missing metadata table" when I connected my iPad to that. The Kindle app version is 4.16.

I'm stuck - so any assistance gratefully received!

Lightbulb Interim solution

I've followed the instructions for using the Calibre Content Server, which does seem to work. It doesn't get around the fact that my iPad/Kindle app was connecting fine until today - but at least I can load books with it.
