    <p>Hi Maher,</p>
    <p>I have not seen this issue with lift_embargos script for the
      numerous EPrints 3.4.x repositories I maintained, which includes a
      fair few 3.4.1 repositories.&nbsp; It looks as though the embargo is
      lifted, it is just the error message is concerning and makes it
      difficult to see which eprints have had embargoes lifted on them.&nbsp;
      <br>
    </p>
    <p>The date_embargo field should only store a date and not a time so
      there should be no reason for why the seconds have been checked.&nbsp;
      The only thing I can think of is that when date_embargo got
      created it somehow got created as a time (including date) rather
      than a date field.&nbsp; You can check this by getting a mysql command
      prompt for your eprints database and typing in:</p>
    <p>describe document;</p>
    <p>if there is any date_embargo... fields other than year month and
      day, then that may explain your issue.&nbsp; However, I feel that is
      unlikely and it would have mean someone had edited
      /perl_lib/EPrints/DataObj/Document.pm or added their own
      cfg.d/document_fields.pl and set the embargo_date field as a time
      rather than a date.&nbsp; So if this is not the case, then let me know
      and I will take a closer look.&nbsp; <br>
    </p>
    <p>What is puzzling is that lines 117 and 118 in
      /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Time/Local.pm check the hour and
      minute are set.&nbsp; If seconds is unset I would expect those to be
      unset as well.&nbsp; The problem is the error message is a core Perl
      library, so it is likely to be something above this in EPrints
      that is sending a set of values missing the second value to the
      timegm method.&nbsp; As seconds is the first parameter for this method
      it is difficult to see how this could be happening.&nbsp; It might ne
      necessary to temporarily add some debug code to Time/Local.pm that
      can produce a stacktrace when there is an error like that reported
      on line 119.<br>
    </p>
    <p>Regards</p>
