Are you getting an option to "Create a new link" or " Update the link"?
Is there any error message while updating the link?
Is it happening with this file or on other files as well?
Is it possible to share a video of your workflow which you are working on so it will be useful to reproduce the issue from our end. Tried to reproduce your issue from our end on latest XD version-188.8.131.52 on Mac 11.2 machine but the Issue was not reproducible, so please share the above mentioned details.
