  4. In this scenario it is possible that you are not the data owner of the product and the existing listing has the Maple Donut flavour only.  If you are not the data owner and you are trying to add 3 more variants to Catch's existing product data owned by another seller, you will not be able to update this listing with the extra 3 variants.  This is a data ownership rule driven by Catch.
  5. If this was the case sellers need to apply to Catch to release the products so it can be updated.  This is one scenario regarding this error.
  6. Other scenarios involve a Catch Error that may be in your rejection report.
