Unable to read Sentinel 3 SLSTR L1 products after update

I’me facing problems reading the Sentinel 3 SLSTR L1 products after the update of the15th of January.

For almost a year, I’ve been downloading and processing the above type of images automatically, through a python script and the snappy libraries.

I’ve been opening the products through the following comands:

reader500 = snappy.ProductIO.getProductReader(“Sen3_SLSTRL1B_500m”)
inp = reader500.readProductNodes(in_file, None)

but now I get the error:

RuntimeError: java.lang.NullPointerException

I’ve also tried the 1000m version and the:

inp = snappy.ProductIO.readProduct(“path/to/xml”)

but doesn’t work either.

I’ve seen that some updates have taken place, but has the spatial resolution of the products changed? How should I open the products now on?

I’ve also tried to use the same tools of my script directly on snap (I’m using version 7.0) and I am unable even to load the .xml into snap. I’ve tried to another computer that has the latest snap version and was able to load the product but I got an error from the Radiance-to-Reflectance processor.

Is this normal? How should I deal with these new products?

Thank you so much.

Dear Nobody,
I have similar issues, reported here: Sentinel 3 SLSTR NullPointerException
Might be the same bug, so maybe you can also keep an eye on it there and watch the show.
Good luck,
