Under what circumstances would someone say "It doesn't matter". If it's an error, your program is not running, so do you just give up on your program instead of solving the problem?

One reason why it might not matter is that some people routinely rely on expert help from the Matlab Community or tech support when they encounter bugs. If so, they don't have to interpret the error messages. They can leave that to the experts.

I see. So you have someone else fix the root cause, so you don't get the error again, and you never do eventually find out what the error meant.
