I upgraded my site to CiviCRM 5.4.0 on Drupal 7.5.9. When I went to run the database update, I got this message.

enter image description here

As far as I can tell, there are no message templates by those names. Even if there were, I wouldn't know what I am supposed to do with them. The link for detailed instructions goes to the CiviCRM documentation's Message Templates page and that page does not discuss this scenario.

Any ideas?

    agree that doesn't make a lot of sense - i take it you are aware there is a tab for System Workflow Messages at /civicrm/admin/messageTemplates?reset=1 – petednz - fuzion Aug 11 at 2:17

    Hmm - looks like the names got lost :-( You can safely ignore and nothing will change but the greetings have been improved in the default templates – user4278 Aug 11 at 2:22
  • Yes, I looked at both tabs, User and System Workflow. I don't think I had modified any of the System Workflow templates. Thanks for the replies. – The Doctor Aug 11 at 4:51
