I am stuck and despite searching everywhere I cannot find a solution. Our Odoo V8 Modules list is showing Apps that have long since been removed from /opt/odoo/addons directory. Yet, there are showing on the list.

odoo-server.conf is set to: addons_path = /opt/odoo/addons

I checked log and see:

2015-01-25 15:12:00,051 5165 WARNING printx openerp.models: Cannot execute name_search, no _rec_name defined on base.module.update

So I sense there is a problem but am not sure where to go?

Hi Billie,

You have this problem in old datebase(database defined before removing that module), it will not appear if you create new database. Or if you want to remove that module from current database, you can follow these steps:-

1. Go to Settings==> Users

    Then enable Technical Features and refresh page,, Now you can see extra menu's in Settings

2. Then select that removed module from more click delete that module

3. Now restart the odoo server

4. Then go to settings and update modules by clicking Update Modules list


Now the problem will be solved. Please let me know if this helps.
