[Tex/LaTex] Newest references from Mendeley are not imported to Latex


In the beginning, the import of references from Mendeley worked well. However, now it does not import the newest references from Mendeley into Latex (overleaf).
When I click on the refresh button in latex it states:
Imported from Mendeley at 6:39 pm Thu, 31st Jan 19
So somehow it does not refresh to the actual date (22.02).
I installed Mendeley around 2 months ago and did not do any updates in Mendeley or Overleaf since then. I did not use any unusual references that I haven't used in the beginning, when it was still working
I would be really glad if somebody has an idea what the problem could be.

For future readers with this issue using Overleaf, you may try clicking the New File icon in the upper left-hand corner of your project, then click "From Mendeley." If it says that it's unable to refresh from the account, follow the link in the prompt and scroll down in order to unlink and re-link your Mendeley account. Then try refreshing your bibTex file.

I had to do this after changing my Mendeley password, and my existing references were not affected.

Even if you don't see the refresh error when adding a new file, re-linking your Mendeley may resolve this problem.
