Troubleshooting Question

C#: ADO.NET Entity Data Model with PostgreSQL crashes

Last Modified: 2020-12-09

I'm using Npgsql with an ADO database first model
When I attempt so save changes  I get this Exception by the changes are saved I think

"This NpgsqlTransaction has completed; it is no longer usable."
Code I've cut it down a bit to make more legible

        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.OutputEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
            using (var contex = new gazetteerEntities())
                    var PointOnSurfaces = contex.admin_areas
                        .Where(a => a.fcode == "ADM2" && a.subdivision_code == null).Take(5);
                        //.Where(s => s.subdivision_code == "").Take(5);

                if (PointOnSurfaces == null)
                    Console.WriteLine("Boo Who");
                    foreach (var PointOnSurface in PointOnSurfaces)
                        var POS_ID = PointOnSurface.id;
                        //var db_lat = PointOnSurface.db_lat;
                        //var db_Long = PointOnSurface.db_long;
                        var db_lat = PointOnSurface.latitude;
                        var db_Long = PointOnSurface.longitude;
                        // Do Stuff
                         // Update this column
                        PointOnSurface.subdivision_code = subdivision_code;

                    // Exception thrown here

            } // End var contex

            catch (Exception e)

                Console.WriteLine("Error: " + e.Message);
