"Packages are out of date"?

Hello everyone. Hopefully someone can help me. Attached is a warning I receive when playing the sim. When I click YES the game reloads and some settings in the game change. This usually happens when I wake up my pc from sleep but can show randomly. I have emptied my community folder and I have no update notifications in the game menu. Below is a screenshot of the warning.

I’m getting this from time to time too. Usually a restart (or even 2 restarts) fixes it. Mostly happens to me in the late evening zulu time.
