I got the warning message from the file b) 3.8.0-2017-07-31when updating from 3.7.5 to 3.8.1. (I did not add plg_editors-xtd_fields using some "tricks") A database-update did not show the warning but set the status to ok. 184 database changes did not alter table structure and were skipped. I guess the last id for plug-ins should have bin 478.
Platform Version Joomla Platform 13.1.0 Stable [ Curiosity ] 24-Apr-2013 GMT User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) Apple Web Kit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/61.0.3163.100 Safari/537.36 Database schema version (in #__schemas): 3.8.0-2017-07-31. I then used some manual tricks to add the new plug-in to another (free) id. 3.8 to 3.8.1 gets the "duplicate column name 'params'" error.
I hope no one will update the extension using a hardcoded id. Note that this only happened on one of dozens of sites I ran the same upgrades on.
A number of my clients have reported the issue as well.
I did not get any error message when running the fix although the items were not inserted and the column name was already in the db-table. With a log created a professional could asses it manually later. If now any extension is listed the code is there but the #__extensions entry is missing.
A new plug-in and a new module from Joomla might appear.
