Why am I receiving a Runtime Error in my packages?

If you're receiving the runtime error below in your packages.yml folder, it may be due to an old version of your dbt_utils package that isn't compatible with your current dbt Cloud version.

Running with dbt=xxxRuntime Error  Failed to read package: Runtime Error    Invalid config version: 1, expected 2    Error encountered in dbt_utils/dbt_project.yml

Try updating the old version of the dbt_utils package in your packages.yml to the latest version found in the dbt hub:

packages:- package: dbt-labs/dbt_utilsversion: xxx
