I have been using Microsoft Office and Access for decades, But have never before faced a problem like the one I am going to describe below before the current version of Windows 10.
When by mistake a data type different from the one provided for is inserted in a field an error message pops up saying "you must enter a value in the field, with two buttons 'OK' and "Help" at the bottom of the error screen. When OK or cross at the top right of the screen is clicked the error screen should go to enable entry of correct data in the related field. But this does not happen; the screen only blinks when either the OK button below or the cross on the top right is clicked. I tried several times with the same result. I went for the online repair of Office 365 and tried again but the result had been the same. Request a solution as early as possible from anyone in the tech community.

Which event triggers this error? It could be that you are in a loop where the error is raised over and over because you need to undo a control that has the invalid attempted value in it, but until you remove that invalid value, the same error is raised again. I'm thinking perhaps a Before Update event would be the most likely.

No, this is not a loop event. It occurred when I opened the Access app and was entering the first record of the day while erroneously entered a data of type different from what was set up for that field.
No. It was not Before the Update situation. The office 365 and Windows update were both up-to-date when this happened.

Sorry, perhaps I was not as clear as I hoped. I'm not talking about an update to the software. I'm talking about an Update event in a control on the form. Like this example, where failing to cancel and undo the attempted invalid entry sends the event into a loop as it tries to update, can't because of the response to the question, but still has the wrong value, so it triggers the before update event again.
Private Sub cboTestTimeOfDayID_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim lngMealItemCount As Long
If MsgBox(Prompt:="Click ""Yes"" to confirm you want to change this meal.", _
Buttons:=vbYesNo + vbCritical, _
title:="Change a Saved Meal?") = vbNo Then
Cancel = True
