The only proper way to fix this issue is to manually change the version number in child theme style.css file.

  1. With your favorite FTP client, log in to the site and navigate to ROOT/wp-content/themes/peepso-theme-gecko-child/
  2. Edit the style.css file
  3. In the header of the file, change the version number to match the current version of the parent theme
