@jacques91: The log shows the following error:

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages/calibre/utils/formatter.py", line 377, in safe_format
  File "site-packages/calibre/utils/formatter.py", line 344, in evaluate
  File "lib/python2.7/string.py", line 563, in vformat
  File "lib/python2.7/string.py", line 585, in _vformat
  File "lib/python2.7/string.py", line 646, in get_field
  File "site-packages/calibre/ebooks/metadata/book/formatter.py", line 31, in get_value
ValueError: Valeur*: champ inconnu #subtitle
And you have the following template for the subtitle in the KoboTouch driver configuration:

Code:
{#subtitle}
The error is that you do not have a column called "#subtitle" in your calibre library. You will need to add it or turn off the subtitle option in the driver.

But, this wouldn't prevent the metadata from being updated. And as far as I can see, everything else is fine. The metadata should be updated. At the end of the log is:

Code:
DEBUG:   17.7 KoboTouch:update_device_database_collections - Number of core metadata set=731 Number of books=731
Which means that there were 731 books on the device that were matched with books in your calibre library. And that some part of the metadata was updated for all 731 books.

So, as far as I can tell, the metadata is being updated. But, what isn't being updated?

Thanks davidfor , I have removed the subtitle string in the kobo drive configuration, and you are right metadata should be updated...but not the series as per the following command in the driver:
{series:re(([^\s])[^\s]+(\s|$),\1)}{series_index:0>2s| | – }{title}

Theses are updated as I wrote when I ask for updating the metadata in the kobo library from the KoboUtilities v2.9.0 plugin.
It used to work like a charm before ...

I think we have a complete and utter misunderstanding of what is going on. The template above us the "Save template". This is used to set the file name of the books when sent to the device. This does not appear in the metadata. The recent couple of firmware versions will show this on the details page of the book, but it does not appear anywhere in the library lists for epubs or kepubs. It will be used as the title of a book for the formats that do not have internal metadata. This happens for plain text and CBR or CBZ files.

If the file names on the device do not match what is in the template, then there is a problem. But, nothing so far suggests that is the case.

If you are intending that the above template would set the title of the book when displayed in the library lists, you need to use it in a metadata plugboard.

With this, I am confused about what the problem is. Your first post does say the series info displayed on the device. But, this is referring to the file name. Can you clear state what the problem is? And check that it is still a problem.

Sorry for misunderstanding,
I have used the mentioned template for quite long time now to allow series to be sorted out and easily retrieved in my kobo. As said, it seems that this template is not considered as it used to be: now when transferring a book from calibre to kobo, everything is fine except for the series name which aren't (as it used to be with this template).
I need to use the "update metadata" menu in the koboUtilities menu when the kobo is plugged in to make it done correctly. Is this clearer ?
Thanks

According to the log, the series info should be being updated automatically by the driver. And if the Update metadata in Kobo Utilities is working, then it isn't database problems. Have you let the driver just do it's thing without using the Kobo Utilities?

If it still isn't working, then there is something more we can do for debugging. Pick a book that isn't getting the series info updated, open the driver configuration and go to the "Metadata, on device & advanced" tab. Then put the title in the "Title to test when debugging" field. Then run calibre in debug mode, connect the device and send me the log again. That parameter will print more details about the book with that title. It will show me more about what is going on.

Those lines suggest that the series info is being updated for that book. The first lines, marked in red, show the series info for the book is "En l'an 2513" and the index is 1.

The line marked in green, show how many books were looked at for updating the metadata and how many needed changes. The total books of 733 agrees with the previous log. Which also updated all of them. This time only 9 books are being updated. That is what I would expect. Between the last log and this log, 9 books have had metadata changed so that it doesn't match what is on the device.

Based on this logm the book "En l'an 2513, Tome 1 : L'homme, une espèce en voie de disparition" will be showing the series info as "En l'an 2513 - 1" (in uppercase) in the book lists on the device. Are you saying that this is not the case? If so, could you reboot the device and check what is displayed.

In that case, I have no idea what is happening. The code works here every time. The logs say it is happening. So, I don't know why you are not seeing it.

About the only thing I can think of at the moment is to look at the database on the device. I can at least check whether it does contain what I expect see. The database is in the .kobo directory and is called "KoboReader.sqlite".

But, I would be interested to see a screen shot. This is weird enough I want to see what is actually displayed.

You must have something weird in a setting someplace.

I recently STOPPED using KEPUB on my Aura2 (page render issues) and went back to EPUB format.
I thought I would lose series info. Nope:
After the second connect, there it was on the My Books list, correct, even with the correct index value.

All the metadata management code is in the KoboTouch driver. The KoboTouchExtended driver subclasses this so it gets all the function plus the bit it adds. And you will get the metadata updates for all formats. Or at least you should. I don't remember if I have tried all the formats that the Kobo ereaders support.
