Firmware Upgrade Notice on MK2

I've started seeing a firmware upgrade notice for version 3.8.1 on an MK2 when I start a print.

Does anyone know why this is occurring since the printer is currently using the last available MK2 firmware version, 3.2.3?

If there is no firmware upgrade available for the MK2 beyond 3.2.3, how can I disable this annoying message every time I start a print?

Thanks in advance for any info!

RE: Firmware Upgrade Notice on MK2

the firmware version is identified in the custom Gcode, Start Gcode...   

M115 U3.2.3 ; tell printer latest fw version

I don't see  the message for FW version 3.8.1 in either Prusa Slicer 2.3.0 or 2.3.1 Release candidate, which prusa slicer are you using?

Thanks for your reply. After examining the gcode, it looks like the problem occurred while using PrusaSlicer 2.3.0. I had a print problem and was trying to identify the source and reverted back from slicer version 2.3.1 to 2.3.0 in case it was contributing to the problem. I have since gone back to version 2.3.1 and the upgrage message appears to have gone away.

Thanks for helping me understand why I was getting the upgrade message.
