Literal control started appearing as null after Tue 14 Jan RRS feed

  • Question

  • I run an aspx /C#  Web application developed in Visual Studio on a hosted VPS running Server 2016  ( which has started failing after 14 Jan 20120 when a literal control in the aspx file always appeared as null. This problem does not appear in a Win 10 environment using IISExpress. The problem of literal controls always being null appeared many years ago  ( see  but seems to have reappeared.Hosting support thought the problem might have arisen from a patch. However, the update history for the O/S (running as a Windows emulator) does not record any updates between 20 Nov 2019 and 24 Jan 2020. After the 24 Jan update the problem was still present.Is it possible that the Linux system running the Windows Emulator received an update that could have caused the problem?
