[Solved] Can't make changes in News Settings

I just upgraded from WBCE 1.4.2 to 1.4.4
PHP 7.4.8
News with Images ver 5.0.4

I have second NWI block turned off:

[== PHP ==]
<?php

if(!defined('NWI_USE_SECOND_BLOCK')){
    define('NWI_USE_SECOND_BLOCK',false);
}

(* I just checked and changing Second Block to 'true' does not fix this issue.)

When I try to change anything (e.g., Posts per page) in News Settings and click Save, I get this Warning, and any changes are not saved:

Unknown column 'use_second_block' in 'field list'

When I try to switch on Expert Mode in News Settings, I get this error, and it remains in "normal" mode:

Unknown column 'mode' in 'field list'

Can anyone assist?

Go to Add-Ons > modules and run update.php for nwi.
(Unfortunately there's a bug in the WBCE Update script which prevents that the module is updated automatically.)

Thank you for you quick reply.

There are many posts on this NWI page.  Will they be lost if I execute the update.php manually.
The warning scares me:

Warning: Existing module database entries will get lost. Only use this option if you experience problems with modules uploaded via FTP.

No, you will not lose them.
To be 100% on the save side you can make a backup of your site before running the update script.

Already did the full backup.  I will proceed.  Thank you for the confidence.

Edit - Did the manual upgrade and the issue is gone.  Thank you!

Is this a reported issue, and is there documentation somewhere about doing the manual upgrade for NWI, that I missed?  Just curious.

The issue was noticed some days ago (https://forum.wbce.org/viewtopic.php?id=3787), it is fixed in the current development branch of WBCE. I think we will publish another bugfix release of WBCE fixing this and some other non-critical issues in the next few weeks.
