Using external DEM source coregistration

      I want to use an external DEM, and I selected it at the DEM source at coregistration parameters, but when I try to run coregistration I get the error I listed below this message.
      I have tried 2 DEM .tif files:
      – High Mountain Asia from NSIDC
      – AW3D30 from JAXA
      and they definitely cover the selected area.

      Coordinates System:
      Horizontal Coordinates: WGS 1984 [EPSG: 4326]
      Vertical Coordinates: WGS84 (EGM96 GEOID)

      I want to use a different DEM than the provided SRTM as I want more current data as I am researching from 2015-2021 (and a DEM more suitable for the Himalayas where the choice of DEM can have a big influence I believe).

      What am I doing wrong? (everything does work when using the default SRTM)
      Thanks in advance!

      generally speaking, read carefully this:
      In your case, given this message: “get_master_pts: previous files available. Exiting. ”
      start over the whole process again (don’t update the site, re-extract the master image)
