ERROR Collecting Reuters estimates failed

Hi,
I collected listings from IBKR with “collect_ibkr_listings(exchanges=‘SEHK’, sec_types=[‘STK’])” in notebook, but when I run “collect_reuters_estimates(universes=[‘hongkong’])” and after few requests this error occurs (flightlog):

quantrocket’s version is 2.1, the same error was for Sweden. But “collect_reuters_financials()” worked ok.
Please help, what’s wrong and where?

IBKR/Reuters has started returning some reports (as of today) that are not valid XML but instead say “MISSING_DATA”. Normally the IBKR API returns an error code (430) to indicate that no data is available for a security. QuantRocket looks for that and is not expecting this invalid XML.

The 2.2 release will be out later this week and we can include a fix to handle this scenario as a new way of indicating “no data available”. In the meantime you will need to exclude those securities from your universe if you want to collect the data, though that may be tedious and it might be easier to wait for version 2.2.

Version 2.2.0 is now available and includes a fix for this issue.
