Error: Sequence contains no matching element in C# Asp.Net

Dung Do Tien May 17 2022 632

I have created a service in .Net 6 that helps get a list of data and transfer it to the MySQL database. I wrote a function help insert data like this:

 public async Task<int> MultipleInserBooks(List<BooksInfoEntities> books)
        if (books == null || !books.Any()) return 0;
        List<BooksInfoEntities> newBooks = new List<BooksInfoEntities>();
        // check duplicate books
        foreach (var book in books)
            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(book.BookName))
                var bookObj = newBooks.First(x => x.BookName.Trim().Equals(book.BookName));
                if (bookObj == null)
        // Insert books and return
        return updateBooks(newBooks);

But when calling this method I got an exception threw System.InvalidOperationException: Sequence contains no matching element.

 System.InvalidOperationException: Sequence contains no matching element

What is that mean?

I used VS2022 and .Net 6.0, Window 11.

Thanks in advance.

    I got same the error as you. See this line of code below:

     var bookObj = newBooks.First(x => x.BookName.Trim().Equals(book.BookName));

    You got this issue because you are using First() LinQ function.

    Solution: Change First() to FirstOrDefault() function. And your issue will be solved.
