Two most common causes for addons not working after an ESO update #124427
I noticed this week that some Alithians had some issues with getting addons to work after the Greymoor chapter update, so I thought I'd share some info on the two most common reasons addons are suddenly disabled after a new update came out.

In some cases, addon authors add new libraries their addon depends on when releasing a new version. Unfortunately, Minion will not automatically follow these new dependencies and install the needed libs.
To check for missing dependencies, go back to the addon menu and look for something that looks like this:
