Modified link, Missing Link pop ups
Basically I get a pop up of modified or missing links every 2 to 3 minutes, constantly, it keeps happening with different files, I do have links but they are not being modified nor missing!!! And it drives me crazy, this is new for me, since I updated to Ai 2020. Any help?

The team is aware it happens again, although the reason seems to be different, and the statistics is needed on the magnitude of it. Please don’t hesitate to comment.
I'm getting the same issue. It's driving me CRAZY. It keeps coming up every 15 seconds at least.
Also, sometimes when I place an image, right after placing, it's saying "there was an error placing this image" and if I Ignore all, it places a kazillion copies of it...
This version of Illustrator is rough....takes forever to save the most basic file. And this 'update missing links' window every time I move an image around my file. I'm not updating links, I'm just moving an image.
So buggy Adobe.....figure these things out please.
This occurs much more frequently on my program, 3 to 4 times every 5 minutes
Experiencing a similar issue but with EMBEDDED links (not live ones), details here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/39154411-embedded-links-in-illustrator-2020-show-up-as-both
Linked images that gets embedded in Illustrator 2020 shows up on both MISSING links panel and EMBEDDED panel - triggers the "Some files are missing or modified in Links Panel. Would you like to update them now?" popup every 10-15 mins (but all images are embedded).
Source images before embedding lived within same folder as the AI workfile. Already tried placing images in /Links folder before embedding, does not solve issue of image being classified as missing AFTER embedding.
Also noted that linked images NOT embedded do not show up as missing and perform as per usual (only asks for update if modified).
This is on a 2019 Macbook Pro running Mojave 10.14.6, latest version of Illustrator from Creative Cloud.
Image files for test file are web-sized JPEGs, nothing crazy.
How can I ensure embedded links stay embedded and stop Illustrator from asking me to update them/thinking they are missing?

Same here... driving me insane!!!
YES, I'm so glad it's not just me. It's so annoying.
I get this too!!! Please fix!! It happens whenever I place linked images, move them around, etc. The constant pop ups are SO annoying!!
Same issue as soon as I updated to 2020. Please fix... very annoying!
Same problem. When will it be fixed?
Same here. The Link Update PopUp appears every 2 to 3 mins.
It only happens once I does any adjustment to any linked image.
The work around for me is to modify the images as soon as possible and save the file. Then work on the vectors afterwards.
Same problem here. Started about a week ago since being asked to save a file on the cloud or on my desktop.
HAving the same problem last few days. So annoying.
Yes! I am getting this too, every 10-15 seconds as I work, it's maddening!

Same issue... any help appreciated. Didn't appear UNTIL I deleted a linked image.
My illustrator keeps giving me a pop up that says "some files are missing or modified in the links panel. Would you like to update them now? Regardless if I click yes or no, it keeps popping up. 1. there were no missing links. 2. then I deleted all links in the document and it is still popping up every 5 seconds. Its extremely frustrating
