U4-7892 - Sequence contains no matching element - packaging service

Created by Jon Humphrey 03 Feb 2016, 15:17:24 Updated by Shannon Deminick 11 Feb 2016, 15:41:27

While creating a starter kit for my client I've updated the standard Media Image Type to use the Umbraco.ImageCropper following @crumpled_jeavon's example [here |https://umbraco.com/follow-us/blog-archive/2014/5/30/developing-a-website-with-responsive-images-using-the-umbraco-v714-image-cropper/] and included the new data type in my package.

When trying to install the kit to a new 7.3.x instance, with the required Archetype 1.12.0, RJP MultiUrlPicker 1.3.1, and ImageProcessor v2.3.0 installed already, I received the following error:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Sequence contains no matching element

this didn't happen before creating the new DataType and including it in the package?

The conflicting code is this DataType declaration in the package.xml:

    <DataType Name="General Cropper" Id="Umbraco.ImageCropper" Definition="1df9f033-e6d4-451f-b8d2-e0cbc50a836f" DatabaseType="Ntext">
        <PreValue Id="403" Value="[]" Alias="crops" SortOrder="0" />

I'm happy to send you both the "broken" kit, as well as the "working" kit if this helps, but of course it's client work and will need to be kept to yourselves.

I've created a [pull request|https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/pull/1093] for the updated code, hopefully this will help anyone else who hits the same issue!

Thaks for everything with Umbraco, I couldn't be without it now!
