Hi,

The following MWE

* Test repeating task

** My tasks

*** TODO Test task
    SCHEDULED: <2021-08-18 Wed +1w>

works fine:

* Test repeating task

** My tasks

*** TODO Test task
    SCHEDULED: <2021-08-25 Wed +1w>
    :PROPERTIES:
    :LAST_REPEAT: [2021-08-18 Wed 07:50]
    :END:

    - State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2021-08-18 Wed 07:50]

However, when part of a larger file, the state information is inserted twice:

* Test repeating task

** My tasks

*** TODO Test task
    SCHEDULED: <2021-08-25 Wed +1w>
    :PROPERTIES:
    :LAST_REPEAT: [2021-08-18 Wed 08:02]
    :END:
    - State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2021-08-18 Wed 08:02]
    - State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2021-08-18 Wed 08:02]

Moreover for a similar task in the same larger file, when the state is
changed to DONE, I get the error

  user-error: Before first headline at position 1 in buffer gtd.org

and neither the SCHEDULED date nor the LAST_REPEAT date are updated:

*** DONE Read mail
    SCHEDULED: <2021-08-18 Wed +1w>
    :PROPERTIES:
    :LAST_REPEAT: [2021-07-21 Wed 08:32]
    :ID:       639369df-7c91-443a-89bd-b7f97719bda7
    :END:
    - State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2021-08-18 Wed 07:27]

I'm running Org mode version 9.4.6 on Emacs 26.1.

Any ideas what I could look for in the larger Org file which might be
causing the problem?

Cheers,

Loris

This seems like the same issue I was having last month. A patch was 
posted here:

https://orgmode.org/list/87wnpxv1d8.fsf@localhost/

As far as I can see, it has not yet been applied to the official org 
repo, but I applied the patch manually to my local org and everything 
has worked fine since.

I tried to check https://updates.orgmode.org/ for more info, but got a 
502 Bad Gateway error.

Do `M-x org-lint` on your agenda files. It may not solve this problem, but
it's always worth trying first, since it's so easy - and it may find other
problems that you are unaware of.

org-lint is actually the first thing I reach for when I experience org
oddities.

On that topic, is there a way to suppress a single checker?  I
occasionally reference files which are on file systems mounted via
sshfs.  If the file system has not been mounted, org-lint will flag such
files as missing, which isn't such a helpful piece of information.

Cheers,

Loris

Good to hear that the patch is working well for you. I’ve recently checked
updates.orgmode.org and you may be glad to hear that it appears there :)

The patch itself looks good to me, hopefully it gets merged soon (I’m not
familiar with the org-agenda code).

All the best,
Timothy
