WordPress Version error: Imagick was compiled against ImageMagick version 1808 but version 1809 is loaded

After updating LocalWP yesterday, “Warning: Version warning: Imagick was compiled against ImageMagick version 1808 but version 1809 is loaded. Imagick will run but may behave surprisingly in Unknown on line 06.3.1” this error appears in the Local Sites interface. When I loaded my website everything was working fine except the pages that were made with Theme Builder and Anywhere Elementor Pro.
I deactivated the plugins and reactivated them which seems to have solved the problem for now. But is this something that could break my website? I am very new to all of this.
How can I fix this warning?

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.


If you’re no longer seeing the error after refreshing plugins and themes you might be good. You shouldn’t have any long-term issues but if you need some more troubleshooting information here are some other threads related to this error:
