Missing Files Dialogue keeps re-appearing
The missing files dialogue keeps re-appearing after exactly 10 seconds, despite me selecting "No" for the following message;
"Some files are missing or modified in the Links panel. Would you like to update them now?"
Using Illustrator 26.0 64-bit on Windows 10.

Can't get any work done with the links panel popping up every 30 seconds to tell me that my links are modified or missing - I know that they are - and I do not care

I solved going to Window > Link. Click on the missing link, relink for any file, then its solved.

Problem not resolved.
This is still happening even after the most recent update and it is almost impossible to get anything done. PLEASE FIX THIS
Angie, it’s a workaround, but not the solution.
Most of the time I need those links, it’s just I don’t want to update them **yet**. After I am done with edits, I am OK with getting them updated ...but Ai should not bother me with that question all over again if I choose not to and don’t make any changes to a linked file!

I figured out how to do this and can I just say how proud of myself I am? lol You go to "Window", then scroll down to "Links", then you should see the "links panel" open, click on one of the links (maybe double click - my bad ones had a red image in them) and then click on the "go to link" icon and it will show up in your document, click on the item and delete it. Once you've deleted all the bad/old links, the dialogue window should stop.

I keep getting a error message saying I have missing files for every file I open or create in AI.
Illustrator constantly asks if I want to relink broken images, however, there is no indication of which image is broken, and no name shows up when this happens. If the ignore button is clicked, the window will show up again later (seemingly the next time the mouse leaves the window and comes back.) This is extremely annoying if working on multiple monitors.

I have the same issue. It keeps poping whatever i answer (no/yes). No files are linked.
Windows 26.0.1 (64 bits)

Option for not showing alert message again for updating missing/modified links. The message keeps showing up every few seconds or every time I switch between adobe cc apps. (Ai ver.26.0 | windows 10)
Yes, it started to behave like this for me too.
Every time I move or scale a linked file in my document, the alert comes up that says "Some files are missing or modified in the Links panel. Would you like to update them now?". I have the files in a specific folder and it happens with every file, every time I do anything with the layer in Illustrator v24.01 MacOS Cataline 10.15.1
