I'm getting the following error in the daemon after the update:

2018-10-17 23:36:03.705 [RPC1] ERROR cn src/cryptonote_basic/cryptonote_format_utils.cpp:185 Failed to parse transaction from blob

Everything appears to be fine except this error is in red. All of the google searches tell me something is possibly wrong with the blockchain database locally but I just updated and everything seems fine.

It does not mean your blockchain is corrupted, and you do not need to resync it or otherwise fix it. Either apply the patch above if you can, or wait for
